Pricing Roads, Advancing Equity

A Report and Toolkit to Help Communities Advance a More Equitable and Affordable Transportation System: TransFrom January 2019


Inequities have long been ingrained in our transportation system. Vulnerable communities— which include high concentrations of low-income households, people of color, and those disadvantaged due to ability, age, or other factors—have long borne the brunt of negative transportation impacts while paying a proportionally larger share of their income to get where they need to go. Meanwhile, in response to worsening road congestion, inadequate funding sources, and climate change considerations, cities and regions across North America have begun implementing road pricing programs. While equity issues are often analyzed as part of pricing studies, the primary focus has been on minimizing negative and disproportionate impacts on vulnerable communities, as opposed to maximizing benefits and redressing historic or systemic inequities.
