A newly-released white paper authored by ECONorthwest’s Matthew Kitchen offers insights into how fair and efficient congestion pricing could work in Seattle, and what the likely implications would be. The study uses data from Uber Technologies, Inc. and the Puget Sound Regional Council. Matthew Kitchen writes, “This white paper offers a promising glimpse of a fair and efficient approach to congestion pricing that could generate significant benefits for the city and potentially win broad support.” Matthew’s white paper was highlighted in a recent Seattle Times article titled, “Up to $3.80 a day: Uber suggests possible downtown tolling program for Seattle.”
