Congestion Pricing: Long-Term Economic and Land-Use Effects
Elena A. Safirova, Sebastien Houde, D. Abram Lipman, Winston Harrington, Andrew D. Baglino
RFF Discussion Paper 06-37 | September 2006
RESEARCH TOPICS:
Abstract
We employ a spatially disaggregated general equilibrium model of a regional economy that incorporates decisions of residents, firms, and developers integrated with a spatially disaggregated strategic transportation planning (START) model that features mode, time period, and route choice to evaluate economic effects of congestion pricing. First, we evaluate the long-run effects of a road-pricing policy based on the integrated model of land use, strategic transport, and regional economy (LUSTRE) and compare them with the short-term effects obtained from the START model alone. We then look at distributional effects of the policy in question and point out differences and similarities in the short run versus the long run. Finally, we analyze the mechanisms at the source of the economic and land-use effects induced by the road-pricing policy.
