  • Congestion charge successful and popular

    Six years after it was introduced, the Stockholm city congestion charge has become more successful and popular with every year that has passed.

    A new study shows that overall traffic levels have been reduced by 29%, with no rise in levels reported on roads just outside the charging zone. When it was introduced in 2006, the congestion charge was supported by only 36% of the city’s residents, but last year acceptance was up to 70%.
