Congestion pricing involves charging vehicles to enter highly congested urban areas, usually during peak travel times with the goal of curbing vehicle travel demand and avoiding having to build additional roadway infrastructure. Cities typically use electronic tolling to collect the fees and monitor congestion. Several cities such as Stockholm, London, and Singapore have successfully implemented congestion pricing schemes and now other cities such as New York City (NYC) are actively considering implementing congestion pricing.
