The toll ring offers electronic toll collection with the use of on-board units, the Auto-Pass system. Subscribers with on-board units can achieve up to a 50 per cent discount depending on the amount prepaid.
In 2004 electronic toll collection was harmonized throughout Norway. Most toll roads now use the Auto-Pass system. The system will gradually be expanded further in to provide for payment on ferries, for parking, etc.
The Auto-PASS concept is owned and managed by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA). The concept covers all Auto-PASS tags and Auto-PASS equipment at the charging points (Auto-PASS roadside equipment). The concept also covers all the specifications for the tags, roadside equipment, central systems, interfaces between the system elements, Auto-PASS logo and trademark, Auto-PASS contractual framework and the Auto-PASS security architecture.
The Auto-PASS Service includes both a transport and a payment service (EFC). Examples on transport services include the use of infrastructure like bridges, tunnels, motorways, road networks, road user charging schemes and ferry transport. The payment service consists of a dedicated payment system based on a user holding an Auto-PASS tag, installations at the charging points, e.g. a toll station, and a central account held and managed by the company being responsible for the payment means and contract with the user.
The public owned company, Bergen Bompengeselskap AS is legally responsible for the toll ring. They have outsourced (after tendering) the operation of the toll ring to Bro Tunnelselskapet AS. The current fees are given in the table below. The fee is collected through 19 toll plazas for inbound traffic.
The fee is collected from all vehicles with the following exceptions:
