Abstract

The technology needed to implement Dynamic Road Pricing systems is developing rapidly. This new technology creates opportunities to implement Road Pricing systems based on the socio-economic costs of road traffic with different fares over time and type of road. The purpose of this study is to define such a fare system for the Stockholm re- gion and to compare the impacts of this system to the impacts of a system with cordon toll pricing. The results show that such a system reduce car traffic and there is a good possibility that society will benefit from time savings and reduced external effects.
