Congestion Charges in Stockholm: How Have They Affected Retail Revenues?
() and Ulf Rämme
Abstract: Did the introduction of congestion charges in Stockholm
city reduce retail revenues? Data from 20 shopping malls - 8 within the
toll area, and 12 outside the tool area - and from a sample of retail
stores located along the main shopping streets was analyzed using an
intervention- control approach. Favorable outcomes, such as reduced
traffic, less emissions of carbon-dioxide, and perceived improvements in
air quality and accessibility, do not seem to have been offset by reduced
revenues for retailers located within the toll area.
