Pricing Objectives

The primary objectives of the Stockholm trials during 2006 were to reduce congestion, increase accessibility and improve the environment. The purpose of the (full-scale) trials was to test whether the efficiency of the traffic system can be enhanced by congestion charges.

The secondary objectives of the trials were:

  • Reduce traffic volumes on the busiest roads by 10-15%
  • Improve the flow of traffic on streets and roads
  • Reduce emissions of pollutants harmful to human health and of carbon dioxide
  • Improve the urban environment as perceived by Stockholm residents
  • Provide more resources for public transport


In the permanent scheme, revenue is to finance new road infrastructure investments.
