Dynamic pricing

With the rise of mobile technology and the Internet of Things, new dynamic pricing mech­anisms that would have been inconceivable just a decade ago are now possible—enabling pricing based on variables as time of day, road congestion, speed, occupancy, and even fuel efficiency and carbon emissions. Such pricing models are based on two key values: users begin paying a direct portion of the actual cost, and prices respond to demand.

By pric­ing different stretches of road or transit routes differently—based on up-to-the-minute condi­tions—cities can divert drivers and passengers to cheaper routes, as well as collect payment for what it actually costs to maintain a roadway or system.
