This volume is a collection of research papers on the use of road pricing. The focus is on passenger transport, and the papers cover a wide range of approaches, including theoretical modelling and empirical studies of Road pricing pricing experience from different cities.

Road pricing (also road user charges) are direct charges levied for the use of roads, including road tolls, distance or time based fees, congestion charges and charges designed to discourage use of certain classes of vehicle, fuel sources or more polluting vehicles.

These charges may be used primarily for revenue generation, usually for road infrastructure financing, or as a transportation. Roads can have both positive and negative influences on people and the environment.
