THE ROLE OF PRICING IN THE NATION'S FUTURE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM

A 1-day forum was convened to explore the issue of value pricing and aid in the understanding of the role of pricing in the future U.S. transportation system. Federal, state, and local departments of transportation personnel and economic, environmental, and traffic experts joined to discuss successful pricing projects as well as barriers to their more widespread use. A more equitable transportation system, traffic congestion relief, finding an alternative to a fuel-based financing system, and improving mobility, access, and environmental justice were just some of the motivations explored to implement pricing projects. Three different institutional structures for owner-operators were discussed in the context of trying to introduce pricing.
