      Innovations in Pricing of Transportation Systems: Workshop and Conference

      May 13-14, 2010

      Royal Plaza Hotel in the Walt Disney World Resort
      Lake Buena Vista, FL

      The focus of this workshop and conference is on innovative
      market-based approaches, perhaps in combinations with other
      strategies, to encourage a more efficient use of transportation
      systems and to devise better financing schemes for improving or
      enhancing these systems. The main purpose is to bring together
      practitioners, experts, and researchers from various transportation
      agencies and background (e.g., economics, transportation, civil
      engineering, operations research, industrial engineering, urban
      planning, social science, etc.) to discuss and share innovative ideas
      in pricing of transportation systems.
