SAN DIEGO'S I-15 VALUE PRICING PROJECT: IMPACT ON LOCAL BUSINESSES

The I-15 Congestion Pricing Project was a three-year project in San Diego, in which ExpressPass and FasTrak programs offered drivers of single-occupant vehicles the use of I-15 express lanes. This paper presents findings of a business impact study of this project. The study assessed whether businesses recognized and valued the ExpressPass/FasTrak option. Results showed that delivery-based businesses and businesses located along I-15 were more likely to regard the ExpressPass/FasTrak program as important and as having a positive impact. These businesses were more likely to identify themselves as highly dependent on employees or goods and services traveling the corridor. However, the I-15 FasTrak program did not rank especially high in importance as a factor affecting business performance, although respondents assigned relatively high importance to the quality of regional transportation in business performance. Findings also showed that program use by employees was not common.
