EXPLAINING VARIATIONS IN PUBLIC ACCEPTABILITY OF ROAD PRICING SCHEMES

This paper presents a literature review on the acceptability of road pricing methodologies and the factors affecting acceptability. It also identifies limitations of the research, noting that there is little research looking into understanding the differences in acceptability between users and non-users, to isolate the impacts of selfish and social preferences, or into the effects of system design and level of charge. Results from a stated preference survey conducted in two cities in the UK help to substantiate these findings. It was found that charging was more acceptable to non-users, those who considered pollution and congestion to be very serious, those who viewed current conditions as being unacceptable, as well as those who judged road pricing to be effective.
