Road Pricing Overview

Road pricing involves charging fees for the use of a roadway facility. The revenue generated may be used to pay for highway operations and maintenance or as the primary source of repayment for long-term debt used to finance a toll facility itself. There are two primary variants:

  • Tolling involves the imposition of a per-use fee on motorists to utilize a highway. Historically, these fees have involved fixed, distance-based tolls that vary by vehicle type, but not by time of day. Their primary purpose has been to generate revenue.
  • Pricing involves the imposition of fees or tolls that vary by level of vehicle demand a highway facility. Also known as congestion pricing, value pricing, variable pricing, peak-period pricing, or market-based pricing - this manages demand by imposing a fee that varies by time of day, location, type of vehicle, number of occupants, or other factors. While pricing generates revenue, this strategy also seeks to manage congestion, environmental impacts, and other external costs occasioned by road users.
