  • Abstract:
    Large road pricing projects have been implemented in U.K., France, Norway, Sweden,

    Germany, Switzerland, Singapore and Australia over the past three decades. Additionally,

    congestion pricing has been analyzed and evaluated through numerous studies in nearly

    all EU member countries, in Southeast Asia, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

    To further understanding of international pricing, “Lessons Learned from International

    Experience in Congestion Pricing” provides a summary of selected operational areawide

    congestion pricing projects outside of the U.S. The report draws lessons from a sample of

    projects with the richest and most relevant experience, focusing on three comprehensive

    area wide projects: Singapore, London and Stockholm. Each received in depth attention

    during planning, design, implementation and operational phases and have been monitored

    and evaluated carefully. These projects should be of particular interest now that several

    U.S. cities are beginning to examine similar area wide pricing strategies to address

    congestion, environmental, energy and funding problems in heavily congested downtown

    areas.

    In addition to the lessons derived from the three key projects, this report includes a

    summary of available overseas literature on more than the three specific projects,

    including attention to equity, economic impacts and the acceptability of congestion

    pricing. Research on acceptability is especially detailed in Europe and United Kingdom

    and provides valuable lessons for U.S. cities interested in pursuing such policies. The

    report concludes with overall findings and lessons related to travel, costs and revenues,

    equity and economic impacts, environmental impacts; and public acceptance.
