Road User Charging – National Case Studies



Changes to KM charge in Belgium

07 Sep 2021

In 2016, the Belgian Viapass system was introduced as the first nation-wide and fully EETS-ready electronic kilometre charging platform in Europe. Moreover, Viapass was the first interregional office in the quite complex federal institutional context of Belgium, bringing together the interests of the 3 regional governments of Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels. Bart Dewandeleer, Vice-president for Viapass, will give you an overview of the most interesting figures and results of 5 year’s experience with the Viapass system. He will also point out the challenges for future RUC systems in Europe, particularly against the background of the new EU legislation regarding road user charging.
