Congestion Tax in Stockholm: An Analysis of the Impacts of the Permanent Scheme and Comparison with Conditions Before, During and After the Trial

The congestion tax, a charge levied at certain times of day on certain vehicles entering and leaving the center of Stockholm, was made permanent in August 2007, following a full scale trial during January to July 2006. This allows for the opportunity to compare the situation before the tax was introduced, the impacts of the 7-month trial, the situation after the congestion tax was suspended, and the impacts of the permanent tax. This paper presents an analysis of the results of the impacts of the congestion tax for the region’s transport system, based on the City of Stockholm’s monitoring program.
