Road pricing is moving up the policy agenda as an option to relieve traffic congestion and to reduce the environmental impact of traffic. While the effectiveness of road pricing in relieving congestion has long been demonstrated, both in theory and now in practice in a number of cities, policymakers need reliable, flexible transport models to forecast the impact of road pricing schemes. Road pricing schemes place additional demands on our modelling techniques which require specialist expertise and experience. In this REsource we describe some of the work that RAND Europe has been undertaking with UK clients to investigate road pricing.
