Article presents findings on analyses of usage and capacity of urban highway facilities. Some of the findings discussed: travellers for whom the existing system provides adequate service heavily subsidize travellers who need new capacity. These two groups of users include different individuals with differing proportion of peak/off-peak use of the highway system. Based on three urban areas, the estimated toll rates to pay for needed new highway capacity would be 3.2 cents to 4.8 cents per vehicle mile if tolls were applied systemwide throughout the day; if tolls were only in the freeway system, the estimated rates would be from 20 to 30 cents per vehicle mile. Financing of needed highway improvements by taxes is discussed as well.
