Project Summary

The call to replace fixed charges with car use related charges, has placed congestion charging regimes at the centre of future variable user charging policy. This project investigates the impact and acceptability of alternative charging schemes in terms of the charge level, the regime (for example, distance versus cordon), and how revenue is disbursed.
