The case describes the internationally known Singapore initiative to implement electronically deducted charges for road use, varying by route, type of vehicle, and time of day. The case highlights the widespread public acceptance of the relatively elaborate and novel pricing regime, following an extensive public information and consultation campaign conducted by Singapore's Land Transport Authority. Useful for those interested in successful public consultation.

Learning Objective:
The case is also designed to address economic issues, particularly pricing issues, and includes data to help students grapple with how to set road pricing levels.
