UNFARE SOLUTIONS: TAXING VICES TO SOLVE THE TRANSPORT CRISIS

This paper reports on the results of a CEC study that identified numerous cases, from all over the world, of locally earmarked financing that has been used to fund public transport services. These range from fairly prosaic measures such as taxing property, to taxing oft-frowned upon activities such as drinking, gambling, smoking, driving, flying, and shopping. A common framework was developed to allow policymakers to evaluate each case's appropriateness for their own needs.
