PROGRESS: Pricing road use for greater responsibility, efficiency and sustainability in cities

  The overall objective of PROGRESS is 'to demonstrate and evaluate the effectiveness and acceptance of integrated urban transport pricing schemes to achieve transport goals and raise revenue.'

The objective was approached by focusing on 6 project goals:
To provide effective co-ordination between the demonstration sites, and with the thematic network;
To develop and demonstrate integrated urban transport pricing schemes, based on the concept of marginal-cost pricing, in real urban situations;
To develop and assess the political, economic and social framework required for the implementation of urban transport pricing;
To evaluate the impact and effectiveness of these demonstrations;
To support the sister project CUPID by providing policy results at the local level for wider dissemination;
To develop material for dissemination of the demonstration and evaluation results at the local and national level, and at the European level.
