The Bergen toll ring started operation with six toll plazas on the main roads into the city centre. Until 2001 the operation of the system was on weekdays from 6AM to 10PM. The hours of operation were not based on a road pricing approach, but more on a cost versus revenue consideration of a 24-7 operation. With the prolongation of the ring in 2001, 24-hour operation was introduced on weekdays.
Gradually, the system has expanded to make the burden more equally split. In 2006, a second ring was introduced and later the ring was made fully automated with the use of the Auto-PASS system. All car drivers must pass the toll ring when they drive in the direction of the city centre. Tolls must be paid 24 hours a day all year round including weekends and holidays. There is no extra peak surcharge. Drivers are only charged for one trip per hour and there is a maximum payment of 50 trips per month for users of the Auto-Pass system.
