To relieve urban congestion, road pricing has been practiced in major cities such as London and Singapore for a number of years. Taiwan, as a typical Asian country, has been using electronic toll collection as a way to reduce congestion at toll plaza along national freeways, with possible plans of extending it to congested urban roads for congestion management. In this study, we examined the differences in perception of auto/motorbike commuters in Taiwan and Singapore using SP and RP surveys to investigate how they responded to different road pricing scenarios. Discrete choice models were employed to compare the important factors influencing commuters' behaviour with respect to different road pricing scenarios, representing pre- and post-implementation conditions in these two Asian countries.
