Impacts of Congestion Pricing on Low-Income Populations: Efforts to Measure and Respond to Income-Equity Concerns
From the Summary. The case studies described in this white paper provide a best-practices approach to conducting environmental justice analyses as they relate to identifying and addressing adverse impacts on minority and low-income populations. While each project is unique in terms of proposed design and the demographic context, there are some basic components of good analytical approaches that aim to not only satisfy legislative requirements but also the concerns of constituents and other stakeholders with regard to income equity aspects of road pricing proposals. It is important to note here that at the time of writing of this paper, the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) is in the process of conducting research to develop a toolbox that practitioners can use to evaluate and address environmental justice issues that arise when implementing tolls or rate changes. The research effort, entitled “Environmental Justice Analysis when Considering Toll Implementation or Rate Changes,” will include:
- Tools to measure the impacts of tolling on mobility, access, and household income.
- Tools to engage low-income and minority populations early and often so decision makers and users can better understand the value of trade-offs when considering travel reliability, costs, and time.
- Tools to offset impacts on low-income and minority populations.
