Abstract
The first Mobility pricing strategy for Metro Vancouver is been evaluated with the purpose of reducing traffic congestion in the region, addressing gaps in funding for transportation infrastructure, and ensuring an equitable system. The Mobility Pricing Independent Commission published the Metro Vancouver Mobility Pricing Study in May 2018. This report summarizes the findings and recommendation for a mobility pricing policy in the form of a decongestion charging scheme. To inform the next phases of the Commission’s study, and potential implementation of the decongestion charge in the region, this thesis conducts a case study analysis of the implementation of congestion charge in London, Stockholm and Edinburgh. Key implementation factors such as transportation governance, political implications, public processes and equity, are analyzed and applied to the Metro Vancouver context
