AUTOSTRADE PER L’ITALIA: TOLL EXEMPTION EXTENDED TO HEALTHCARE PERSONNEL CURRENTLY ENGAGED IN ACTIVITIES RELATED TO THE COVID19 EMERGENCYTOLL EXEMPTION EXTENDED TO HEALTHCARE PERSONNEL CURRENTLY ENGAGED IN ACTIVITIES RELATED TO THE COVID19 EMERGENCY
The exemptions already in place for ambulances have been extended to include all vehicles of the voluntary associations in the healthcare sector providing services in relation to the Coronavirus emergency. Said exemptions will remain in place until the end of the emergency.
Rome, 2 April 2020. Autostrade per l’Italia, in agreement with the Italian Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure and in coordination with Aiscat, has provided for the exemption from toll payment for all healthcare workers who need to travel for duty reasons related to the Covid19 emergency (including the home-work route). The exemption, valid on the entire motorway network managed by ASPI, will come into force today and will be valid until the end of the emergency period.
The healthcare personnel interested in benefiting from the exemption need only send a self-certification form to the following email address email@example.com. Telepass holders will not be charged for transits subject to the exemption or will subsequently be refunded. Healthcare workers without Telepass may instead declare at the toll booth that they are travelling to provide support in relation to the emergency, thereby receiving a non-payment report that will be sent to the above email address, together with the self-certification form.
As of today, and until the end of the emergency, the exemptions already in place for ambulances are being extended: in response to the requests of some companies in the sector, Autostrade per l'Italia has decided that any type of ambulance transit connected to the Coronavirus emergency will be toll-free. The same exemptions will also be applied to all vehicles of voluntary associations in the healthcare sector providing services in relation to the Coronavirus emergency. Also in this case, the associations concerned will have to send Aiscat a self-certification proving that the trip is linked to reasons related to the Covid19 emergency.
The information and forms for the activation of exemptions are available on Autostrade per l'Italia's website (www.autostrade.it).
