ENVIRONMENTAL PRICING POLICIES FOR TRANSPORTATION: A DISTRIBUTIONAL ANALYSIS OF THE TWIN CITIES

The report investigates the distribution impacts of environmental pricing policies on groups in the Twin Cities. The study uses data on travel behavior in the Twin Cities to examine the distributional impacts of three types of environmental pricing policies: a $.65 optimal downtown, peak period congestion fee; a 10% gasoline tax; and a 50% transit fare reduction. It evaluates each policy in terms of aggregate welfare costs, revenues, emissions reductions, and cost-effectiveness and looks at distributional impacts by using four groupings - income, region, gender, and age.
