Webinar: Congestion Pricing in the United States
This webinar summarizes Eno’s latest research report titled Congestion Pricing in the United States: Principles for Developing a Viable Program to Advance Sustainability and Equity Goals.
There is no silver bullet to fix the woes of urban mobility and access, but congestion pricing is a proven, viable, and effective tool. Charging a fee for the parts of the roadway network used the most during the busiest times of day reduces demand. The charges incentivize travelers to switch to other modes of transportation, seek alternative routes, or travel at other times. The charges can help to reduce negative effects of traffic such as air pollution, carbon emissions, road damage, and traffic crashes. This webinar will outline Eno’s latest research report discussing how to address the most significant barriers to congestion pricing today: the political, institutional, and communication hurdles.
