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.
