In 2019, the Lithuanian Road Administration under the Ministry of Transport and Communications (hereafter – the Road Administration) managed to save up 3.8 million euros by taking over the administration of e-vignette distribution (hereafter – e-vignette). In 2019, distribution of e-vignettes cost 0.3 million euros; whereas in 2018: 4.1 million euros.

According to Vitalijus Andrejevas, Director of the Road Administration, the provision of services without an intermediator in 2019 cost the state 15 times less than in 2018. More effective and rational use of funds enabled to use the saved amount for road infrastructure projects‘ implementation. 

The number of e-vignette distribution points was increased from 350 in 2018 to almost 3000 in 2019. E-vignettes can be purchased in advance without administration fee at www.keliumokestis.lt as well as at various selling points and via mobile applications.

In 2019 freight carriers purchased 2.98 million vignettes by paying the total amount of 48.7 million euros of road user charge.
