CAR FEES IN THE CITY OF STOCKHOLM. AN ECONOMIC STUDY OF A LICENCE FEE AS A MEANS TO LIMITATION OF CAR TRAFFIC IN THE CITY OF STOCKHOLM

BILAVGIFT: STOCKHOLMS INNERSTAD. EN SAMHAELLSEKONOMISK STUDIE AV LICENSAVTIFT SOM MEDEL FOER BEGRAENSNING AV BILTRAFIKEN I STOCKHOLMS INNERSTAD

An excessive number of cars in towns gives rise to environmental damage and congestion. Of the possible physical restrictions such as traffic planning measures, introduction of bus lanes, parking fees, better public transport and a licence system during rush periods, this report discusses the one mentioned last. The analysis suggests that the net overall economic gains of such a system would range between skr. 0.2 and 1.5M annually. Reduction of traffic would also have favourable environmental effects, and total gains would thus be greater if this plus the improvement in road safety were considered. Licence revenue can be redistributed between groups of road users or between modes. The effects of a licence system over the whole day should be investigated, and the effects of changes in traffic conditions should also be examined. /TRRL/
