Canada's Ecofiscal Commission released the report, "We Can't Get There from Here: Why Pricing Congestion is Critical to Beating It." Reducing traffic congestion requires two actions: Creating more transportation choices and shifting transportation incentives.
The four recommendations are:
- Major Canadian cities should implement congestion pricing pilot projects, customized to their local context.
- Provincial governments should initiate, enable or facilitate congestion pricing pilot projects.
- The federal government should help fund pilot e the projects.
- Governments should carefully evaluate the performance of pilot projects, communicate the results broadly, and incorporate lessons learned into future mobility policies.
