How can road tolls serve urban policy?. This paper evaluates the extent to which urban road pricing schemes are able to satisfy the objectives of urban policy with regard to three frequently incompatible constraints: funding, the environment and social equity. We have devised a technical tolling system which reconciles these objectives and applied it to the case of the Lyon conurbation. We reach a number of conclusions concerning the effectiveness of different toll scenarios in terms of vehicle × kilometres travelled, travel durations, atmospheric emissions and funding. In general, achieving a simultaneous improvement in the above criteria requires at least the introduction of zonal tolls which reduce private car use by those residing in the conurbation and provide funding for alternative forms of transport.
