The Ministry of Infrastructures published on Thursday (12) an ordinance setting the direction of public policy of exemption from tolls for motorcycles, as part of the new federal motorway concession projects which are in the internal call for tenders phase. .
The tariff exemption for motorcyclists was one of President Jair Bolsonaro’s promises. With the new directive, the National Land Transport Agency (ANTT) must adopt the necessary measures, in particular with regard to adjustments in the technical, economic and environmental feasibility studies (EVTEA) of projects. The measure may lead to an increase in the value of tolls for other categories of vehicles by up to 5%.
According to the ordinance published in the Official Journal, the road sections where the exemption from the toll will be valid for motorcyclists are:
BR-116/101 / RJ / SP
BR-381/262 / MG / ES
BR-116/465/493 / RJ / MG
