Congestion Charging- Sweden

Stockholm’s population is growing by more than 20,000 new inhabitants every year. The city’s location on a series of islands, as well as the need to protect heritage and quality of life, meant that increasing road capacity was not an option. The city therefore decided to deploy a congestion tax charging system.

Q-Free supplied the Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR) systems which allow the cities of Stockholm and Gothenburg to operate congestion tax schemes.
