Transit authorities around the world are increasingly considering more flexible road use fees to curb congestion and replace gas tax revenues, but there is little evidence of which policies actually work to reduce congestion across the short, medium and long terms and—importantly—about who benefits and who loses from these policies. Professor Vasserman is collaborating with the Israeli government to assess the potential for such policies to improve urban commuting through a series of field experiments that are likely to yield insights for Israel and around the world.
