Today we review a city report and press comments about congestion in San Francisco where commuters spend 61 hours each year. A number of recommendations have been made, including a $3/trip fee as part of a broader congestion pricing scheme, car-sharing, adding transit only lanes, etc., that would reduce traffic and congestion by 27%. Revenues from congestion charging program could yield up to $80 million each year which would then be used to improve mobility and transportation needs of the city. City Council gave a go-ahead to further study which is one step better than many other American and Canadian cities (such as Toronto and Ottawa) where road vehicles cause at least 50% of greenhouse gas emissions and health impacts from traffic-related pollution. A pilot project is the most favoured option (at 46%) and over 65 percent of travellers think San Francisco should explore congestion pricing, according to recent polls.
