Impacts of TDM on Managed Lane Toll Prices

The purpose of this research is to quantify the extent to which transit and ridesharing reduce traffic density and lower tolls on the l-95 Express Lanes. The tolls on the l-95 Express Lanes are variable and are based on traffic density. Therefore, transportation strategies that increase person throughput can contribute to lower tolls. improved traffic flow and lower tolls both benefit the traveling public. This research benefits the state because dynamically priced managed lanes feature prominently in the state's future transportation plans, particularly in South Florida. This research will add to the body of research done already on the l-95 Express Lanes. lt will help the Florida Department of Transportation have a better understanding of the positive role played by transit and ridesharing in relation to dynamically priced managed lanes.
