Cities around the country are starting to plan for and seriously consider congestion pricing —charging people to drive in busy places at busy times — as a remedy for traffic and climate pollution.

Learn how pricing can advance equity, discuss the challenges and risks, hear about plans for congestion pricing in cities around the country, and strategize with other mobility justice advocates about how to steer pricing policies in the right direction.
