CzechToll

CzechToll built and has been operating a modern satellite toll system in the Czech Republic for vehicles weighing over 3.5 tons since December 1, 2019. This modern technology has enabled the state to improve traffic controls and manage its transport infrastructure much more efficiently than under the previous toll system.

CzechToll was created to develop PPF Group’s long-term strategic plans for telecommunications infrastructure. In order to build a new toll system in the Czech Republic, it teamed up with SkyToll, a Slovak company that operates electronic tolls and runs a system enabling passenger cars to pay for their motorway use with electronic vignettes.

This project became the world’s first-ever generational replacement of an electronic toll system entirely created in the Czech Republic thanks to contributions from some 100 Czech companies. This reliable technology and the entire team’s experience led to a successful and smooth launch free of major disruptions and without any downtime in toll collection. The new system is three times cheaper to run than the old microwave technology.

One of the advantages of satellite technology is the flexibility it offers the government in its toll collection strategy. This means that after the launch, the network of toll roads in the Czech Republic was expanded to include almost 900 kilometers of class I roads. The new system is therefore not only cheaper to run on a wider network of toll roads, but also allows the government to collect more money that can then be re-invested into transport infrastructure.

One Year of the CzechToll System

The CzechToll satellite system celebrated its first anniversary of operation in December 2020. In the space of those twelve months, it recorded almost a billion toll transactions, and vehicles weighing more than 3.5 tons covered more than 3.2 billion kilometers on toll roads. The system’s 60 check gates screened 397 million vehicles passing through them and detected 300,000 toll offences.
