Ulaanbaatar road users to pay annual fees
The Ulaanbaatar City Auto Road Authority (UCARA) announced changes in the road fee policies on Monday, including increased fees for provincial vehicles coming into the city.
According to Unuudur Daily Newspaper, the current fee of 500 MNT for entering Ulaanbaatar will be raised to 1,000 MNT, starting January 1, 2014.
In addition, vehicles registered in Ulaanbaatar are set to pay an annual fee for the use of roads. The fee will be different depending on the vehicle type. For example, annual fees for taxis will be 30,000 MNT, 20,000 to 40,000 MNT for regular passenger vehicles, 60,000 MNT for buses, and 30,000 MNT for special transportation vehicles. Heavy load trucks will pay fees depending on their load capacity; 40,000 MNT for trucks with up to 10 ton capacity and 70,000 MNT for trucks with larger capacity.
UCARA said that the fees will generate approximately 8.8 billion MNT for the road maintenance fund every year. There are currently over 264,000 vehicles registered in Ulaanbaatar.
