Summary of current state of the practice in modeling road pricing

"Road pricing" is a generic term for various strategies that charge tolls for vehicles to use a particular roadway facility. This paper presents a summary of the state-of-the-practice in modeling the impacts of road pricing on travel demand. It discusses how tolls are typically represented in current travel demand models and how toll revenues are estimated in investment studies. It also identifies the limitations of current modeling practice with respect to road pricing and recommends some directions for research and model improvements.
