Congestion Pricing Case Studies
Implementation of congestion pricing on various parts of metropolitan Chicago's transportation network would enhance mobility and also help to fund needed improvements. As supported in GO TO 2040, applying supply-and-demand economic principles can reduce congestion by providing an incentive for some drivers to travel during non-peak hours.As more and more regions consider this style of "road pricing," the Federal Highway Administration released a report in the fall of 2010, "Advancing Congestion Pricing in the Metropolitan Transportation Planning Process: Four Case Studies." The following four regions featured in the report represent places where congestion pricing was successfully included in long-range plans: Dallas/Fort Worth Region, Texas; Puget Sound Region, Washington; Minneapolis/St. Paul Region, Minnesota; and the San Francisco Bay Area, California.
