Investigation of an ITS Framework for Congestion Pricing

Colleen M. McGovern and C. Michael Walton, University of Texas at Austin, October 2002, 85 pp. (167529-1)

This report documents an investigation of an ITS framework for congestion pricing. It begins with a review of the literature related to congestion pricing and ITS benefits prediction methods, which were used as a foundation for the development and analysis of an ITS framework for congestion pricing. In order to develop the framework, activities associated with congestion pricing were first described and then ITS elements were identified to perform these tasks. Analysis of the associated benefits of using the ITS framework for congestion pricing was attempted using two different computer based ITS analysis tools: SCReening for ITS (SCRITS) and ITS Deployment Analysis System (IDAS). Finally the results and findings of this study are presented.
