Urban Road User Charging Online Knowledge Base

Introduction

In this chapter we discuss selected aspects of the implementation process of urban road user charging (URUC).

In a wider perspective the implementation process of urban road user charging can be seen to cover the process elements from A-Z, from initial thought to implemented scheme. In a more narrow sense, the implementation process refers to the phase after the political decision or sometimes only to the physical implementation. This report however, applies the wider interpretation of the concept, but focuses on the process driver mechanisms and interactions between different implementation elements.

Several of the elements in the implementation process are covered in other chapters in this report. Therefore, this chapter will focus on selected aspects that are not primarily described in the other themes: political decision making; policy packages and revenue use; legal and institutional framework; and time span and implementation sequence.

The analysis is based on available literature and scientific journals, but with particular emphasis also on case study experience in the CURACAO project.
