The congestion tax trial in Stockholm has contributed to extensive experience of planning, design, procurement, legal and tax financial framework, implementation process, enforcement, impact assessment, acceptability etc in the field of urban road pricing.
The trial in 2006 was subject to an extensive evaluation in a multitude of dimensions. Major conclusions were:
The trial and the first year of permanent congestion tax in Stockholm show that charging schemes can lead to large impact compared to other types of measures, for example traditional infrastructure investments. Another lesson from the trial is that better and/or increased public transport cannot alone reduce road traffic.
Implementation of a charging scheme is unique due to local, regional and national prerequisites. However, the experience and databases from the Stockholm Trial contribute to profound knowledge in the field of urban road pricing, both as a platform for research as well as for new charging schemes around the world.
Furthermore, with a permanent introduction of congestion tax in Stockholm, we also see the need to increase our knowledge on how to operate and develop an urban road pricing scheme in a dynamic reality.
