Pricing Objectives

In 2007 Transport for London (TfL) reported 1 that the congestion charge had made a direct contribution to achieving four of the Mayor of London’s transport priorities, as set out in the Mayor’s Transport Strategy of 2001, which were to:

 

  • Reduce congestion;
  • Make radical improvements to bus services;
  • Improve journey time reliability for car users; and
  • Make the distribution of goods and services more efficient. These were the key objectives and underlying strategic principles for introducing Congestion Charging in 2003.
