How has Stockholm's congestion pricing experiment turned out and what can we learn from it? Congestion charges were introduced in Stockholm in 2006 as a trial, followed by a referendum. The charges reduced traffic into and out of the city core by 20% and led to huge congestion reductions all over the city. Perhaps more surprisingly, the initially hostile opinion turned, and the referendum led to permanent reintroduction of congestion charges. The traffic effects have persisted ever since. This approach was designated a Tools of Change Landmark case study, through a peer-selection process in 2013.

Presented by: Jonas Eliasson, Professor Transport Systems Analysis, Royal Institute of Technology, and Director, Centre for Transport Studies, Stockholm, Sweden.
