  1. Autoroutes (Highways): The major highways in and around Franche-Comté are part of the French autoroute network. Autoroutes typically have tolls. The A36 is a significant autoroute connecting cities like Besançon and Belfort.
  2. National Roads (Routes Nationales): These are the main roads that connect cities and regions. Some of them may be toll-free, providing an alternative to the autoroutes. The N83, for example, connects Besançon to Dole.
  3. Regional and Local Roads: Franche-Comté has a network of regional and local roads connecting smaller towns and villages. These roads are generally toll-free.


Toll roads, or autoroutes à péage, are common in France. The tolls contribute to the maintenance and improvement of the road infrastructure. When traveling on autoroutes, you’ll encounter toll booths where you can pay with cash, credit/debit cards, or electronic toll collection systems such as Télépéage.

Please note that road networks and toll systems are subject to change, and it’s advisable to check for the latest information on tolls, road conditions, and infrastructure developments from reliable sources or navigation apps before planning any journey.
