Congestion Pricing Webinars

Best Practices in Enforcement on Managed Lane Facilities
This webinar was held on March 28, 2017. View the presentation made during the webinar.

Priced managed lanes continue to gain popularity in recent years as a way to address highway congestion in urban areas. One of the key challenges, however, remains enforcement. Significant time and funding has been invested in exploring innovative ways to monitor and enforce the use of managed lanes. In the past, transportation agencies have relied primarily on law enforcement officers. However, this method often puts the lives of officers at risk; it can be costly; and, identifying which vehicles are violators has been made more difficult due to the variety of exemptions a facility/operator may choose to extend to users.

Transportation agencies, private vendors, and manufacturers have recently collaborated to identify new technologies/strategies that can assist agencies in effectively enforcing managed lane policies. This webinar will feature some of the best practices based on lessons learned from some of the new enforcement technologies that are being tested and utilized.

Virtual Workshop on Environmental Justice Analysis, Tools, and Approaches
This webinar was held on March 6, 2017. View the presentation made during the webinar.

The perception of negative equity impacts has often plagued congestion pricing projects. It is argued that pricing roadways limits the options available to low-income travelers, while simultaneously increasing the number of options available to high-income users. Significant research into income-equity impacts of congestion pricing projects, however, has shown that well-designed pricing schemes can help mitigate such impacts and ensure greater options for all travelers, regardless of their income category. This workshop will examine the tools and approaches developed and used by agencies to respond to environmental justice (EJ) concerns and federal requirements. We welcome input from your experience with EJ analysis.
