Lesson Background HTML

This research synthesized evaluation findings from 24 projects sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Congestion and Value Pricing Pilot Program between 1991 and 2006. In addition to documenting lessons learned applicable to policy and institutional issues, outreach and public acceptance requirements, and issues relating to the adequacy of technology for the administration and enforcement of pricing programs, researchers examined the effects of value pricing on travel and traffic, costs and revenues, equity, and impacts on the environment.

The projects selected for review were grouped into the following six categories of pricing strategies:

  • High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) to High-Occupancy Toll (HOT) lane conversions with pricing
  • Variable pricing of new express lanes
  • Variable pricing on existing toll facilities
  • Regionwide variable pricing initiatives
  • Making driver costs variable
  • Other pricing projects (i.e., voluntary cash out and carshare programs).
