Abstract

The European Commission together with researchers and authorities in eight European cities initiated and co-funded the TransPrice (*) project which aims to address the issues of integrated trans modal transport pricing, towards achieving oplimum modal split in urban area, at pan-European level..

The TransPrice project philosophy is to investigate a trans modal, integrated pricing and financing regime for urban transport that is based on three fundamental principles, viz:

* Clear policy objectives of optimising modal split: Optimum is defined as the modal split at which the total generalised costs of both public and private transport are minimised

* Aiming towards internalising the environmental and other external costs of transport systems

* Allowing for revenue allocation from road user charges to financing investment in public transport, non-motorised modes, road safety and environmental improvements.
