  • Towards fair and efficient pricing in transport. Policy options for internalising the external costs of transport in the European Union. COM(95) 691

Abstract

As part of a comprehensive transport strategy, this Green Paper explores ways of making transport pricing systems fairer and more efficient by giving users and manufacturers incentives to adjust their transport behaviour. Various possible instruments are identified and discussed. The Green Paper argues that fair and efficient pricing should constitute an essential component of a transport policy strategy and can contribute significantly to reducing some of the main transport problems (notably congestion, accidents and environmental problems). Its objective is to launch a broad discussion on this issue.
