Union Tank Eckstein (UTA) is facilitating fee processing for vehicles over 3.5 tonnes ahead of the DarsGo toll system’s barrier-free processing technology, launching in Slovenia, on the 1 April 2018. Clients can obtain a DarsGo On-Board Unit (OBU) via a UTA full service card at Dars, Petrol, Österreichische Mineralölverwaltung and Magyar OLaj- és Gázipari Részvénytársaság service stations.
The toll applies to all motorways and expressways throughout the country with the amount based on vehicle class, Euro emission class and the distance covered.
Drivers that wish to complete part of the registration process can register on the DarsGo web portal and obtain an OBU by presenting a collection ticket and a copy of the vehicle registration document at a Dars service station. A post-pay method also settles toll fees by linking the OBU to the UTA Full Service Card at the point of sale, which is said to generate a largely automated invoicing process.
Volker Huber, chief executive officer at UTA, said: “Slovenia plays an important role for many companies as a transit country to southern Europe. We are therefore delighted to be able to provide our customers with several excellent ways of preparing for the launch of DarsGo.”
