Nvironmental Economics: The Economic Impacts of the Congestion Charge in London, U.K.
brief introduction, history and reasons for the CC in london
An analysis of Londons experience with the Congestion Charge (CC)
Include some relevant data such as amount of the charge, change in traffic flows etc.
CC increases the usage of public transport and thus, demand for public transport goes up -> problem london public transport is not made for the amount of people using it!
Different charges depending on size of engine which determines fuel
consumption and emission. Furthermore no charge for electric cars-> thus,
demand for electric cars increases dramatically. Figuresfrom before and now
What could be improved and what would be done differently if you could apply it to another European city? have other European cities introduced such a zone?
