A STUDY OF BEHAVIOURAL CHANGES IN A ROAD CONGESTION REDUCTION SCHEME, WHERE MONETARY REWARDS ARE PROVIDED FOR AVOIDING THE RUSH HOUR, 2014
Mobility is a condition for economic growth. As transport systems become more and more congested due to increased demand for mobility, the normal response of governments has been to increase capacity through investment in more infrastructure. The Netherlands have introduced mobility management schemes which financially reward road users to avoid the peak-time. These schemes are proving that congestion problems can be addressed in other ways.
