New European cashless toll settling system now available

May 16 | 2018

A new on board toll settling system, UTA One®, has been launched by cashless payment system provider UTA (Union Tank Eckstein GmbH & Co. KG), enabling tolls to be paid in all participating EU countries.

The device initially supports the toll systems in Belgium - including the Liefkenshoektunnel - France, Italy, Austria, Poland (A4), Portugal and Spain. Later, Germany and other European countries will be added by what is called an over-the-air update.

The number of countries will continue to rise, because UTA will continuously expand its offerings as additional toll systems are launched within the European Electronic Toll Service (EETS). The new update option along with the integration of all transfer standards of the European toll environments, Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC), make the new toll solution particularly future-proof.

The new UTA One®“To offer our customers the best possible solution for interoperable electronic toll services (EETS), we have thoroughly tested the new UTA One® prior to its launch”, explained Volker Huber, CEO at UTA. “Thorough testing on miles of real-life trips to Strasbourg, Calais, Brussels, Aachen, Bolzano, Innsbruck and Salzburg has shown the toll solution to be reliable.”

Vehicle operators will soon be able to use a single On Board Unit (OBU) to travel across Europe with all fees charged to one invoice. UTA also handles administration and evaluation so customers will need just one partner. They will also benefit from a user-friendly ordering and registration process, which is available in several languages at
