"Ecotaxe" will become Transit Toll "PTPL"

The French government has decided to defer the introduction of the transit toll system PTPL indefinitely, due to problems regarding the realisation and performance of the test stage. We will keep you posted on this issue!

With effect from 1st January 2015, the new transit toll for HGVs called "PTPL" (= péage de transit poids lourds) will replace the former "écotaxe" in France. All vehicles over 3.5 tons will be subject to PTPL. The PTPL network will comprise a total of about 4,000 kilometres (federal roads and municipal roads).
The free test stage will start on 1st October 2014 and the final implementation of the PTPL system is scheduled to start on 1st January 2015.

The UTA MultiBox® can, of course, also be used for the PTPL system

Due to the new legal decision in France and with regard to vehicles registered in France, it will no longer be mandatory to equip each vehicle with an On Board Unit (OBU).

As soon as we will dispose of more detailed information from the French government, we will, of course, informe you accordingly.
