In January 2006, a full-scale congestion charging system was introduced in Stockholm, consisting of a time-differentiated cordon charge around the inner city. The introduction was a trial, followed by a referendum in September 2006, where a majority votes for keeping the congestion charges. The charges were re-introduced in August 2007. This paper describes the process, the system design, the reduction in traffic and congestion that resulted, and the change in public opinion from very negative to largely positive.
