“Congestion Pricing in Gothenburg since January 1st 2013: Overview of traffic effects”
On January 1st 2013 Gothenburg became the second city in Sweden to introduce congestion pricing. The system is very similar to the system introduced in Stockholm 2006. Both are designed as time-of-day varied single-cordon toll systems. This paper summarises the effects of the charges and analyses to what extent the political targets (revenues, congestion reduction and improved air quality) were met. Effects on traffic flow reduction, local environment and revenues were smaller than forecast (in contrast to the Stockholm trial).
