Congestion Charging -- London And Beyond

An Urban Land Institue policy forum examines London's congestion pricing and the implications of imposing fees to drive downtown.

"ULI Senior Resident Fellow Robert Dunphy, who specializes in transportation and infrastructure, noted that the street layout of downtown London is particularly conducive to congestion pricing, because of its extremely limited road capacity and its extensive transit options, including the subway system and buses, as well as taxis and walking. New York is the city in the United States that comes closest in matching those characteristics, he noted."
