Technology Trends in Congestion Charging

Congestion charging has gained popularity as an effective mean to reduce pollution and to improve mobility in large metropolitan areas. Congestion charging is already in use in London (UK), Stockholm (Sweden) and Singapore. Several other cities around the world are planning to introduce similar schemes. A number of different technologies and architectures can be used to implement a congestion charging system. This paper gives suggestions as to what to look for when designing a congestion charge and discusses issues related to congestion charging schemes where the solution is based on electronic registration of vehicles.
