Road Pricing Reform Other events...
Distance and time based road pricing schemes have been proposed by many transport economists as an efficient way to manage scarce road infrastructure. Introducing road pricing involves many stakeholders, and there are many issues that need to be resolved before implementing such a scheme in practice, in particular public acceptance and technological complexity. In this presentation a novel distance (and time) based strategy is proposed that is based on voluntary participation in which participants will not be worse off than their status quo, and revenues for Treasury stay at the same level. The majority of the car drivers will be better off by participating, increasing its public acceptability. The system has been devised with simple technology without the need for extensive fraud prevention measures. Further, it can be introduced quickly without having to make large investments. Finally, the system is designed such that the more people participate, the more incentives other drivers have to participate as well, such that after several years the transport system will automatically transition to a distance (and time) based pricing scheme. While the novel scheme can be generically introduced in different countries, an introduction in the context of Australia will be discussed.
Speaker(s) The seminar will be presented by Professor Michiel Bliemer (ITLS)
