TRB Congestion Pricing Committees
The following TRB Committees foster research and develop reports and presentations related to congestion pricing. The Committee web sites provide links to committee meeting minutes, reports, and other resources that can assist transportation practitioners with better understanding and implementing congestion pricing strategies.
Managed Lanes (AHB35)
This committee is concerned with the evolving role of high-occupancy vehicle, high-occupancy toll, and managed lanes in response to the challenges of congestion, energy consumption, and climate change. The committee examines methods for enhancing person throughput, energy conservation, air quality, and user choices and safety through the optimization of preferential lanes, priority treatments, and other supporting systems for bus transit, carpooling, and vanpooling. The committee’s activities focus on the planning, design, operation, pricing, and evaluation of preferential lane facilities and on the development, validation, and dissemination of theoretical, experimental, and applied research related to preferential lanes.
Congestion Pricing (ABE25)
This committee’s mission is to foster research for a better understanding of the technological, operational, business, administrative, political and institutional aspects of pricing transportation systems and services. This includes a wide array of strategies designed to cover conventional and non-conventional approaches employed across transportation modes, including integrated transit, variable pricing coordinated across surface transportation modes, aviation pricing, parking pricing, parking “cash-out”, and road pricing mechanisms that seek to affect transportation demand and use.
