Doyle Drive Congestion Pricing

San Francisco's first evaluation of a congestion pricing project was the proposal to implement such scheme at the Doyle Drive, a major approach to the Golden Gate Bridge. In August 2007 the United States Department of Transportation selected five metropolitan areas to initiate congestion pricing demonstration projects under the Urban Partnerships Congestion Initiative, for US$1 billion of federal funding, and the San Francisco Bay Area was awarded with a $158 million grant for this purpose. Later the city later withdrew its proposal to implement congestion pricing at the Doyle Drive as part of the Urban Partnerships Congestion Initiative, and instead it will be implementing a USD 47 million rehabilitation project to relief traffic congestion near the Golden Gate Bridge.
