ASFINAG – Have a good trip, Austria!

ASFINAG was founded in 1982 as a public limited company, owned by the Republic of Austria (100%). This company was not operatively active, nor in the field of construction neither in the field of motorway operation. Its aim was limited to financing services.

In 1997 ASFINAG was transformed into a company responsible for the entire management of Austria's motorway network. Since that time ASFINAG has the usufructs right and collects tolls for the use of its network. These tolls are the most important financing basis for ASFINAG as ASFINAG receives no money from the state even if the company is still owned by the Republic of Austria.

ASFINAG’s network consists of 2,249 km of motorways, 166 tunnels and more than 5,800 bridges. ASFINAG’s core tasks include motorway operation, maintenance, construction management and toll collection as well as traffic management. ASFINAG and its more than 3,000 employees are committed to provide responsible and long-term solutions by using new technologies and innovations to make Austria’s motorways among the safest and most modern in Europe.

TOLLING

The Austrian toll system consists of a time-related toll (toll sticker/vignette for vehicles under/equal to 3.5 tons and motorcycles) and a distance-related (mileage-dependent) toll for vehicles over 3.5 tons. The toll revenues belong to ASFINAG, which is also responsible for the toll collection.

ASFINAG also operates special toll sections in Austria’s alpine regions charging a distance-related toll for all vehicles which is collected at toll booths or via license plate recognition. In 2020 ASFINAG also implemented a new free-flow tolling solution at two of the six Austrian toll plazas at the motorway A9 Tauern Autobahn which is a major north-south-connection in Austria.

Tolls for vehicles above 3.5 tons are collected electronically via a free flow multi-lane DSRC system.

For cars and motorcycles ASFINAG introduced a digital vignette (directly linked to a vehicle’s license plate which is registered in a database) by the end of 2017 in addition to the toll sticker. This product is available online https://shop.asfinag.at/ and via the ASFINAG App as well as at selected points of sales.

Toll rates

For vehicles with more than 3.5 tons maximum permissible weight a distance-related toll applies on Austria's motorways including surcharges for air and noise pollution since 2017.

Purely electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles get a discount of approx. 75% compared to EURO VI emission class vehicles on the infrastructure rate. Further details on the current toll rates for heavy vehicles can be found on www.go-maut.at/en/.

FUTURE TRENDS

Sustainable mobility

With our network of motorways throughout Austria, we contribute significantly to the population's mobility and quality of life, as well as to the competitiveness of Austria as a business location.

But our responsibility goes beyond that: In our role as a major employer and contracting authority, we strive for attractive employment conditions, sustainable supply chains, fair business relations and comprehensive environmental protection.

Our goal is sustainable mobility, and this calls for continuous further development and innovation. For this reason we are active in numerous research projects and are intensifying our cooperation with important stakeholders on a national and international level. This involves a great variety of topics and challenges: From automated traffic and decarbonisation, to health and diversity, and on to climate protection and preserving biodiversity.
