ROAD PRICING IN NATIONAL PARKS: A CASE STUDY IN THE YORKSHIRE DALES NATIONAL PARK

Road user pricing is typically associated with urban contexts; however, congestion at rural attractions is of increasing concern and user charging may be considered as a suitable policy instrument. This paper examines the issue of rural road pricing and presents the results of a survey of car-based visitors to Upper Wharfedale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park (U.K.), which explores the potential impacts on mode and destination choice of a road user charging scheme, combined with a park and ride alternative. The scheme was found to be acceptable to 68% of the respondents, with nearly one-half opting to park and ride.
