The Impact of Adopting Time-of-Day Tolling: Case Study of 183A in Austin, Texas

This report summarizes how motorists would respond to time-of-day pricing on the 183A Turnpike in Austin, Texas. It was hoped that time-of-day pricing would encourage off-peak time departures and reduce congestion. A travel survey, stated preference survey, traffic and revenue model estimation and scenario testing were conducted. A tool was developed to predict departure and route choice changes in response to 183A tolling changes. Findings suggest that lower off-peak toll rates will not result in shifting departure times, will reduce revenue, and ultimately will have little effect on peak-period traffic.
