There aren't many cities with full-scale congestion pricing. Singapore, London, Stockholm are among the best known. What conditions allowed that to happen in a city like Stockholm? What motivated it?

This webinar takes a look at what happened, with someone who was there when it happened. Daniel Firth is project manager for Stockholm's Sustainable Urban Mobility Strategy. He's responsible for the implementation of Stockholm's policies on congestion pricing and strategic parking management. Before Stockholm, Daniel spent five years at Transport for London, working on the implementation and operation of the central London congestion charging scheme.

Daniel will discuss the impediments and the responses—and provide an up-to-date analysis of the results...along with suggestions on what they'd do today if they started over.
