Reduction of congestion, economic and transport growth and a positive impact on climate change – the right road user charging (RUC) schemes can deliver all this. Furthermore, technological advances provide further stimulus to road user charging projects. Notwithstanding all this, getting such schemes operational can still be fraught with difficulties.
Road User Charging 2010 is an event where market participants and decision makers (public authorities, suppliers, operators and consultants) can gather to find solutions to the successful launch and implementation of RUC projects. The event will include:
An update by the European Commission on the latest policy proposals and the implications for your RUC schemes
Current, innovative European and global RUC and electronic toll collection schemes delve into how they successfully got their initiatives off the ground, how they supported the business model with the right charging technology and share the results of their cost/benefit analysis
The latest developments in European HGV tolling, including examples from the innovative Slovakian scheme
How to measure and prove the environmental and socio-economic benefits delivered by RUC
The latest in interoperability, cross-border co-operation and cross-border mobility.
