Revenue from sales of electronic motorway stickers declined 3% yr/yr to HUF 38.9 billion (€142.5 million) in the first eleven months of 2009, Hungary's State Motorway Management Company (ÁAK) announced on Tuesday.
ÁAK said that it had sold 1% fewer electronic motorway stickers from January 1 until November 30.
The volume of monthly motorway stickers fell 6% and that of one-day ones, available for lorries, fell 3%. ÁAk sold an unchanged number of full-year motorway tickets and 1% more four-day ones in the period.
ÁAK noted that traffic decreased an average of 3% on Hungary's motorways during the first eleven months of the year. Traffic fell the most, by around 8%, on M1, linking Budapest with the Austrian border. Turnover fell 6% on the Budapest-Székesfehérvár section of M7 and fell only minimally on M3, connecting Budapest with Nyíregyháza (NE Hungary). (MTI-Econews)
