    The City supports the idea of road / congestion pricing, and bridge tolls are one possible implementation. A regional (as opposed to a downtown or city) approach might work best, given travel behaviour, patterns of movement, and jurisdictional issues. This lies outside City jurisdiction, so our role is limited to advocacy; changes to Provincial legislation are required.

    I like JS's idea. Perhaps the revenue from the congestion tax could pay for covered bike routes and public electric outlets for those exempt plug-in electric vehicles. A full overnight charge for a typical all-electric car costs about $2.00. A top up during the day would cost about a dollar. Electric bikes can be fully charged for less than 10 cents. Maybe Vancouver could invest in a fleet of public bikes, similar to systems in Paris and Montreal, except they could be electric.
