Telepass and Brescia Verona Vicenza Padova motorway: nine months free Telepass fee
15 March 2022

From 15 March to 15 June 2022 it will be possible to join the new initiative promoted by Telepass and the A4 Holding Group, which controls the company Autostrada Brescia Verona Vicenza Padova S.p.A., concessionaire of the A4 Brescia-Padova and A31 Valdastico motorway sections: the exemption of the subscription fee dedicated to new Telepass customers resident in the five provinces crossed by the Group's motorways.

The promotion is valid for residents of the provinces of Brescia, Verona, Vicenza, Padua and Rovigo who subscribe to the "Telepass Family" electronic toll service, in the time window from 15 March to 15 June 2022. The exemption will be valid for nine months, starting from the first day of the month in which the "Telepass Family" subscription contract is signed, during which time the customer will pay only the fare for the motorway section travelled, without the fixed costs relating to the subscription.

The promotional initiative is aimed at facilitating traffic flow, reducing queues at toll booths and increasing environmental benefits and motorists' safety. Increasing the use of electronic toll systems, in fact, there are advantages in terms of reducing waiting times near motorway toll booths, especially on busy days or at peak times of day. At the same time, eliminating queues at motorway stations also reduces pollutant emissions of waiting vehicles and improves motorists' safety by drastically reducing the number of vehicles present at the same time in the station forecourts.

The promotion is therefore supported by Telepass, as part of its Safe&Clean philosophy, and by Autostrada Brescia Verona Vicenza Padua with the aim of improving traffic flow and contributing concretely to safe and sustainable mobility.

A study, commissioned last year from the Ca' Foscari University of Venice, has in fact quantified the reduction in polluting emissions thanks to the presence of Telepass stations that prevent vehicles from stopping to collect and pay for motorway tickets, analysing the A4 Brescia-Padova, one of the busiest stretches of motorway in Italy and Europe: 146 km of motorway with an average of 95,000 vehicles per day and over 50 million vehicles transited per year in pre-Covid periods. The research applied a special mathematical-scientific model developed by the academic team and calculated a saving of no less than 3,350 tonnes of CO2 in 2019 avoided thanks to the use of Telepass barriers (2,880 tonnes of CO2 in 2020).
