Is Congestion Pricing in Our Future?

Would you pay for how much you're driving?

Congestion pricing has been proposing for two Bay Area bridges in San Mateo county. Will the idea of congestion pricing take off in the Bay Area beyond the bridges? We interview experts in transportation issues at the University of California at Berkeley, and polled students about what they think about the potential of congestion pricing. 

Share your thoughts on the Congestion Pricing Facebook Page.

Congestion pricing is just one of the many ideas proposed to reduce traffic and our carbon foot print. Technology can be a big part of the solution, according to Robin Chase, founder of Zipcar. Chase wants to use mesh network to allow road tolls: "we should be charging people for carbon," she says.

You can learn more about Chase's vision for green transportation beyond road pricing in her TED talk, Robin Chase on Zipcar and Her Next Big Idea.
