Pricing Objectives

The choice made for the new way of paying for mobility is based on four principles:

  1. fairness, because motorist as a group should not be paying more
  2. support, because broad societal support is essential to such a major change of system
  3. affordability, because operating costs must not escalate
  4. accessibility, because the instrument must contribute to better accessibility
