Towards Optimal Locations and Toll Levels in Congestion Pricing Schemes

This paper addresses the problem of designing a road congestion pricing scheme with link tolls. The problem involves decisions on where to locate the toll collecting facilities and what tolls to charge the road users. The paper will formulate this problem as a bi-level program, with the objective to maximize the net social surplus, which include the cost of setting up and operate the toll collection system. A previously developed heuristic method is applied to find close to optimal toll locations and charges for a traffic network representing the Stockholm region. The result is compared with the current congestion pricing scheme in Stockholm.
