Road User Charging – National Case Studies



Tolling in Lithuania: Future plans for 2023 and beyond

07 Sep 2021

The current road user charge in Lithuania is based on a time (vignettes) and was introduced in 2007. In 2018,  we switched from paper vignettes to electronic vignettes.

In 2020-11, legal decisions were made to start the implementation of a project to switch to distance based tolling system. During the preparatory phase, an analysis of the project was carried out, and after assessing the necessary conditions, investments, maintenance costs and etc. GNSS technology using mobile devices was selected as most appropriate for the toll collection system in Lithuania.

The project of the new road toll system is planned to be implemented in 2023. Upon the project's implementation, aside other benefits additional funds to ensure high quality and safe main roads should be collected.
