International approaches to tackling transport congestion: paper 3 (final): financial and taxation measures

This paper reviews experience internationally with financial and taxation measures: 1. Financial measures typically provide direct financial incentives to encourage use of environmental-friendly modes in preference to single-occupant car use; 2. Taxation measures involve adjustments to the taxation regime to favour travel by more environmentally-friendly modes or vehicles. The paper focuses primarily on experience in Europe and the USA, as these measures have primarily been applied in these regions.
