Transportpakker i By. Rammebetingelser, Organisering og Innhold en Oversikt

The focus in this report is the toll cordons/transport packages in the four largest Norwegian urban areas: Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim and Nord-Jaeren. The following questions are addressed: What are the characteristics of these package in particular in terms of the financing scheme and the use of revenue; what are the reasons behind the content of the different packages. The question concerns the relation and interplay between framework, organization and decision making processes. What are the strengths and weaknesses of the organization of the packages. The main focus is to evaluate whether the organization of the packages lead to priorities that are in accordance with the overall transport policy. The report concludes that the overall effect of the organization is ambiguous. In terms of improved mobility the organization has resulted in increased funding for infrastructure . However, the organizational focus on making the packages acceptable by the public and the focus on investments result in other important policies being omitted, such as parking policy.
