The focus of this workshop and conference is on innovative market-based approaches, perhaps in combinations with other strategies, to encourage a more efficient use of transportation systems and to devise better financing schemes for improving or enhancing these systems. The main purpose is to bring together practitioners, experts, and researchers from various transportation agencies and background (e.g., economics, transportation, civil engineering, operations research, industrial engineering, urban planning, social science, etc.) to discuss and share innovative ideas in pricing of transportation systems.
