Community Meetings on Auto Congestion Fees
|November 25, 2008||Posted by jamie under Transportation & Ped Safety||
Transportation planners in San Francisco are exploring the feasibility of charging motorists a user fee as a way to manage congestion, a concept known as congestion pricing, following receipt of a $1 million study grant from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The Authority applied for the grant funds from the FHWA Value Pricing Program at the request of Jake McGoldrick, District 1 Supervisor and Chair of the Transportation Authority.
The Mobility, Access and Pricing Study (MAPS) is developing and analyzing comprehensive packages that combine pricing for mobility with transit improvements, traffic flow enhancements, and other projects, to offer more sustainable choices to those traveling to and within San Francisco.
