The Committee fosters research aimed to gain a better understanding of the technological, operational, business, administrative, political and institutional aspects of innovative congestion pricing of systems and services for all modes of transportation. Strategies include integrated transit, variable aviation pricing, parking pricing, parking “cash-out”, and other mechanisms that seek to affect transportation demand and use. The Committee seeks to develop a comprehensive understanding of the effects of congestion pricing on the transportation system, in addressing passenger and freight mobility, transit and highway interdependence, and interoperability of systems.
