M11 Highway has a closed type toll collection system. When entering a toll section, the user must take a ticket at the toll plaza located in the travel direction. Travel is paid at the exit toll collection point based on the data on the place and time of entry to the toll section contained in the ticket.
Calculate the toll for your route. Rates differ depending on the day of the week (weekdays / weekends / holidays), and time of day (day / night).
Top up the transponder with the required amount in advance. If you have a T-pass transponder, the transfer of funds may be delayed; funds are usually transferred to the WHSD transponder immediately.
Check in the personal account of your transponder if the interoperability function is enabled if your transponder is not T-pass. New WHSD transponders, for example, are automatically connected to this function, on older versions you will have to enable it manually.
If you have T-pass, Main Road, M11: 15-58 transponders, and are going to drive along the WHSD in St. Petersburg, then be sure to check that this function is enabled.
