Pricing Objectives

The objective of pricing was to raise private sector revenue to feed an urban transport investment package, initially intended to be financed 60 % by user fees and 40 % by government funds. However, the differentiated charges and the absence of seasonal passes had a secondary demand management objective. Motorists had to pay per trip (with limits) and they paid more during peak periods. Still, the pricing system was not intended to manage congestion, since the peak toll was set low, and the peak/off-peak differential was small.
