Analysis and evaluation of road pricing benefits and costs (2004)
A study of the benefits and costs of road pricing projects is presented. A method for estimating the benefits and costs of road pricing initiatives to examine the economic and social impacts created from this type of intervention is introduced. This method incorporates the combination of several types of cost functions and traffic assignment methods, to allow the comparative analysis of the benefits and costs created for users and the transportation system. The method is applied in a case study in Christchurch, New Zealand, and the results show that current road pricing practices, based on travel time minimization, may create a transportation system which is more inefficient than not intervening. It is also observed that social optimization allows the minimization of social costs and consequently it creates more benefits for society as a whole.
