COSTS AND BENEFITS OF INTERNALIZATION STRATEGIES: CASE STUDY ZURICH

External effects distort markets, also in transportation. This paper deals with strategies to eliminate such distortions by internalizing net external costs of transport. The case study deals with the urban transport system, passenger and freight in the greater Zurich metropolitan area. Powered terrestrial transport modes - private and public - are considered. The results presented here are based on a research project "Social costs of transportation, case study Zurich" under the Research Programme "City and Transport" of the Swiss National Science Foundation, and on various earlier related studies by the authors. For the covering abstract, see IRRD 885092.
