3 | The road to mobility pricing: strategies, challenges and solutions

About this session

Love it or hate it, mobility pricing is here to stay. Planners and policymakers around the world are revisiting mobility pricing strategies as a solution for dealing with congestion and environmental challenges caused by road-based travel.

Mobility pricing – also called congestion pricing, road usage charges, or cordon charges – is a transportation policy where road users are charged fees based on factors such as time, distance, or level of congestion. The aim is to manage vehicle emissions, reduce congestion, and fund transportation infrastructure.

So, what different approaches can be taken to implement mobility pricing?

In this InfraSight session, CPCS transport advisors Kitty Chiu, Adrian Lightstone and Steve Allen, and Daniel Firth of C40 Cities explore the key factors that go into implementing mobility pricing. They investigate various approaches used by transport agencies globally and examine their potential impacts. They also discuss what policymakers should consider when designing mobility pricing strategies in this rapidly changing landscape.

Watch this session to:

  • Gain an understanding of what mobility pricing is, how it works, and why it’s gaining traction as a strategy for managing urban mobility challenges

  • Explore mobility pricing considerations, strategies and mechanisms being implemented by transport agencies globally  

  • Uncover trends and opportunities related to mobility pricing
