Demand management: How parking and road user charging might be used as a lever

11:10 - 12:05

With rising demand for transportation infrastructure, but limited space to build more, cities face the need to find alternative solutions to manage congestion.

What if we can ...

  • Improve human health, safety, the environment and the economy by reducing congestion?
  • Develop congestion management solutions in cities by employing best practices from around the globe
  • Manage congestion through pricing without building new roadway infrastructure?
  • Use technology and data collection to track and understand congestion issues?
  • Reduce congestion by developing transit-orientated communities and improving transit services?
