REACTIES VAN WERKGEVERS OP REKENING RIJDEN EN CONGESTIE

This paper describes the procedures used by, and the results of a study amongst companies and institutions concerning changes in the patterns of business travel due to the introduction of road pricing. In interviews with company executives possible changes for the next years were presented and discussed. Data have been collected for two scenarios. The first scenario assumes that road pricing has been succesfully implemented. The second scenario considers a situation without road pricing and in which traffic conditions have deteriorated. The employers' reactions are limited to marginal adjustment of the business travel pattern. The strongest effect is a minor shift to off peak periods. The reactions to both scenarios are comparable, but the opinions are quite different. In a forced choice situation, a preference exist for road pricing rather than the congested scenario.
