The focus of this project - under the assumption that constitution can be changed - is to work an organisational sponsorship model for road pricing in Switzerland under the side condition to minimize necessary law changes
The project used 5 scenarios to illuminate the legal and organizational challenges faced by an implementation of mobility pricing in Switzerland.
Despite the ban on charges on public streets, instruments exist today in Switzerland that basically function as mobility pricing as for example the Swiss Heavy Vehicles Fee or the charges for public transport. With regard to the implementation of mobility pricing scenarios, research results and material gleaned from existing instruments provide important information concerning a possible adjustment to the legal basis.
The study shows that for the implementation of object charging, the authority for the implementation of the object models could be granted through an exemption authorization from the Federal Assembly. Should this model, however, not just be realized for individual exceptional cases, legislative implementation of this model at both the federal and the cantonal levels will be unavoidable.
