Congestion Pricing, U.S. Style

This article describes briefly congestion pricing versus implementation of streetcars. The author suggests that congestion pricing may be harder to implement because it is basically a road tax. Streetcars are more attractive because developers are typically involved from the conception of a project. According to Community Streetcar Coalition data, return on investment can be more than 1,000 percent. The author contends that the federal review process discourages streetcar and some bus rapid transit projects.
