Toll fees capped at R550 for e-tag user
The standard tariff for a normal car will be 58c/km. An e-tag tariff is based on 30c/km.
Government has proposed that toll fees for e-tag users be capped at R550 a month for light vehicles, Transport Minister Ben Martins said on Friday.
“Registering for an e-tag account will provide users with the lowest possible toll fees,” he told reporters in Pretoria.
“Following the consultations, we have lowered tariffs, reduced caps in all categories, offered discounts on tagged vehicles and during peak hours, and exemptions on public transport.”
According to a Sanral presentation there were three different tariffs for different class of vehicles.
The standard tariff for a normal car, or Class A vehicle, was 58c/km.
The e-tag tariff was based on 30c/km. This was down from the 40c/km decided on last year, Sanral toll and traffic manager Alex van Niekerk told reporters in Pretoria.
The base tariff for light vehicles would remain at 58c/km.
Van Niekerk said the e-tag tariff for motorcycles had been dropped from 24c/km to 18c/km, for medium heavy vehicles (Class B) from R1/km to 75c/km, and heavy vehicles (Class C) from R2/km to R1.50/km.
