Urban Road User Charging Online Knowledge Base

Economy

Since 1990, the Oslo Packages have financed parts of the road and public transport investments in the Oslo region. Oslo Package 2 has been dedicated to investments in public transport. The Government was to finance 45 per cent of the investments in Oslo Package 1. About 40 per cent of the revenue from road user charging should be spent on public transport investments. From 1990-2001 Oslo Package 1 (funding from user charging and the state budget) financed investments for a total of 11 billion NOK (about 1.4 billion Euro).

The total operating income of the Oslo toll ring was 1,248 mill NOK (156 M€). The operating cost of the Oslo toll ring was 134 mill NOK (16.8 M€). The operating costs have stayed at 10-11% of the operating income for the last 10 years. Having close to 93 million registered trips through the ring in 2006, this makes the operating cost per trip to be 1.4NOK (0.2€).
