DCST issues RFP for a decongestion pricing study
Decongestion pricing is cutting down on traffic in London, Stockholm, Singapore, and soon New York. Many other cities are looking at it. Would it make sense for DC?
The 2020 DC budget funds "a study that evaluates and makes recommendations regarding the potential benefits of congestion pricing on the District," which DCST is coordinating in partnership with the District Department of Transportation (DDOT). We are seeking a contractor or team of contractors to prepare a study which analyzes potential road and/or bridge pricing policies, the potential use of revenues from such policies, and the benefits and costs with a particular focus on improving equity.
