L.A. looking at congestion pricing

In a move to relieve traffic congestion and combat climate change, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) board of directors voted to continue to explore congestion relief pricing.

The authority will do a 12- to 24-month feasibility study to evaluate three options: a cordon model, where anyone traveling into a designated zone is charged a fee; a Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) model, where charges are based on the number of vehicle miles traveled within congested areas; and a corridor model, where anyone traveling within a congested corridor is charged based on number of vehicle miles traveled within that corridor, according to the trade publication, Metro.
