Price cuts for undersea tunnel discount tickets
The companies behind the country’s two undersea tunnels have decided to lower the toll prices.
For discount ticket holders travelling in passenger cars, the price for a return trip will be lowered from DKK 25 to DKK 20.
From 1 August, a 20-trip discount ticket for passenger cars will cost DKK 400. A 40-trip ticket will cost DKK 800 and a 200-trip ticket will cost DKK 4,000.
Other changes will not be made at this point.
There has been a steady increase in traffic through the undersea tunnels, with the first half of 2018 seeing an increase of 7 percent.
Assuming the same traffic increase in the second half of the year, the price reductions will cost the tunnel companies half a million kroner this year.
The upcoming changes will increase the price difference between discount tickets and single tickets. From 1 August, a passenger car with a discount ticket can do five trips through the tunnels for the price of one single trip.
