Differentiated Congestion Pricing of Urban Transportation Networks with Vehicle-Tracking Technologies

This paper explores a new type of congestion pricing that differentiates users with respect to their travel characteristics or attributes, and charges them different amounts of toll accordingly. The scheme can reduce the financial burden of travelers or lead to more substantial reduction of congestion. Given that the scheme requires tracking vehicles, an incentive program is designed to mitigate travelers’ privacy concerns and entice them to voluntarily disclose their location information.
