02 March 2006 12:00 - Ottawa and Region - Toll may make trips a fee ride

by multilinko (via)
Travelling into downtown Ottawa could get costly if a city councillor has his way. If rising gas prices aren’t enough to make you take the bus, maybe a congestion charge will. Capital Coun. Clive Doucet wants the city to charge a user fee for every car heading into the downtown core to help pay for road and sewer repairs in older Ottawa neighbourhoods. He wants the city to experiment with a two-year pilot project to test its effectiveness and gauge the public’s reaction to the charge. The idea is similar to one instituted by London, England, which began charging drivers a toll in an effort to discourage cars in the capital’s core.
