John C. Falcocchio, Herbert S. Levinson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Pricing strategies have emerged since the 1970s as a means of better allocating road space to reduce congestion and to more equitably cover the costs that road users contribute to the congestion. Congestion (or value) pricing is supported by many economists, planners, and public officials. Within the United States, it has the support of the US Federal Highway Administration.
