Abstract

This paper describes how road user charging is considered as a transport management tool for various urban areas worldwide. However, rural or protected areas might also be affected by such policies. This paper focuses on the implications of the proposed road user charging scheme in an area of the Peak District National Park in the UK. By applying both qualitative and quantitative methods it highlights the importance of issues such as scheme acceptability, funding and timing of implementation of the scheme, as well as the obvious differences compared with similar schemes for urban areas.
