Road-user charging and the modelling of revenue allocation
In this paper, the preferences for the allocation of revenues from a road-user charging scheme are investigated and modelled, from the point of view of three users' groups; car users, public transport users and cyclists and walkers. The data was collected as part of a larger survey to investigate the consequences of road-user charging in the city of Edinburgh. Respondents were asked to indicate their level of agreement for a number of revenue allocation spending options. On the whole there has been overall agreement on spending the revenues on improving public transport services. Spending preferences were also modelled to allow for a number of policy scenarios to be developed for the allocation of revenues. The result of the analysis suggests that the preferences of spending within public transport are real-time information, reliability, integrated ticketing, fare reductions and network coverage.
