Seattle's "Traffic Choices Study" is a FHWA-funded pilot project that is testing new ways to combat traffic congestion and fund transportation. The key features of the project are (1) in-vehicle, GPS-based billing, (2) a hold-harmless billing design, (3) system-wide pricing, and (4) an experimental vs. control research design. Matthew's presentation will cover the project design, current information, and some preliminary findings. For a preview, see the project website http://www.psrc.org/projects/trafficchoices/index.htm.
