This will take place in 2 steps :
- Electronic vignettes have been launched since the 1st of January 2019
The e-vignettes will be available from more than 500 sales outlets and self-service terminals, as well as through apps and web applications.
- This will soon be followed by the GNSS based toll for trucks from 16 August onwards
By the 31st of January all forms of paper vignettes should be replaced by electronic vignettes scheme. Until 15th August 2019, HGV, buses and other road vehicles over 3,5 tons will pay a vignette fee on a monthly, weekly or daily basis.
Bulgaria’s HGV toll will also enable a completely open device market, similarl to the Hungarian Hu-Go programme, meaning a market open to several device suppliers.
