The operator of the state system "Platon" ("RT-Invest Transport Systems", RTITS) does not plan to collect tolls on the roads from cars. This was reported in the press service of the organization.
Thus, RTITS commented on earlier reports about the possibility of introducing a payment for cars. In particular, the Telegram channel "Nezygar" reported that the position "passenger car" appeared on the service website.
The state system "Platon" was created to comply with the procedure for collecting fees established by the current legislation only for vehicles with a maximum permissible weight over 12 tons, - reported in RTITS.
The organization said that the information provided by Nezygar was not true.
As chernayakobra.ru wrote, the Ministry of Transport has prepared a draft transport strategy, which provides for free travel on public transport. The draft strategy provides for the introduction of fares for private cars from 2025. Then this measure will affect regional roads, and from 2035 - “all categories of road users”. At the same time, it is not specified whether travel by private car will become toll on all types of roads.
The proposed measures are expected to stimulate the phase-out of personal transport in major cities.
