This article provides an in-depth review of the state-of-the-art and describes methodological advances in the design and evaluation of road network pricing schemes. A number of paradigm shifts from the two polar cases of the marginal social cost pricing of road traffic congestion and revenue-maximizing road toll pricing are analyzed, as induced by the need to address realistic design complexities and constraints. The crucial role of the joint consideration of pricing strategies with optimal… 
Introduction to the feature issue on design and evaluation of road network pricing
Several pricing strategies are increasingly considered worldwide as possible options to mitigate the negative externalities of traffic congestion in urban networks, manage travel demand and improve
Dynamic Road Pricing for Revenue Maximization
A modeling framework and a solution methodology are presented for the toll problem of dynamic revenue maximization. The problem requires determining the optimal time-varying toll prices for a
Public transport and road pricing: a survey and simulation experiments
TLDR
Simulation results indicate that a suitably designed policy package can significantly enhance modal split in favor of public transport without significantly increasing the level of road user charges.
Modelling Social Welfare Effects of Relocation and Road Pricing
Road pricing is a popular congestion reduction strategy. However, there may be wider impacts associated with a road toll. We consider a factor which is sometimes overlooked, namely that workers and
Comparative Analysis of Dynamic Pricing Strategies for Managed Lanes
The objective of this research is to investigate and compare the performances of different dynamic pricing strategies for managed lanes facilities. These pricing strategies include real-time traffic

Congestion Pricing with Distance Tolls: A Review and New Developments
This paper discusses the optimal toll design problem of cordon-based pricing with nonlinear distance tolls. In the previous studies, however, the cordon-based congestion pricing scheme usually takes
Urban Congestion Pricing: Practices and Future Development
This paper addresses the practical implementations of congestion pricing schemes adopted in urban cities for mitigating traffic congestions. A review is first provided for the practices of congestion
