Congestion pricing is an idea that has broad support from transportation practitioners. However, many elected officials and members of the general public are skeptical that these charges, which would apply to drivers on the busiest roads during the busiest times of day, are regressive fees. Well-designed congestion pricing policies can not only minimize impacts, but can also address current inequities in today’s transportation system by dedicating revenues toward improving non-single occupancy vehicle options, like public transit. In this webinar, our panelists will discuss how to build equity in to the process of developing congestion pricing, the policy itself, and how to measure equity in transportation systems.
