Abstract

Among numerous, established instruments of Mobility Pricing, e.g. public transport or parking fees, new approaches for pricing the mobility can be found more and more. City toll systems, like the introduced ones in London and Stockholm, gain a lot of attention, also internationally. As a consequence, in many countries, the opportunities and risks of new instruments are going to be debated intensivly. In order to support the upcoming discussions, this article looks into the requirements and the effects of the different mobility pricing instruments. The potential goals of mobility pricing are presented, and an overview of the achieve political and planning goals and to optimize traffic and transport systems. An objective and substantiated discussion of new instruments appears to be not only desirable but absolute necessary, in terms of a sustainable design of our traffic and transport systems.
