Introduction

Transferability may be defined as covering all issues related to how evidence gained about the performance of road pricing systems in one situation may be applied to other situations. It can involve evidence from both real and synthesised implementations and to include the full range of themes that are considered important in assessing the success of schemes.

Transferability of experience from one city to another will be affected by a wide range of factors, including city size, density and transport supply and demand; cultural impacts on user response and acceptability; the detailed design of the scheme, any complementary policies and the ways in which revenues are used; and, fundamentally, the objectives of a given scheme. It is difficult enough to assess how the performance of a given type of scheme, designed to meet a given set of objectives, will transfer to another city with the same objectives. It is altogether more complex to assess transferability where the two cities have differing objectives.

No information on this theme is currently available from the case studies
