Detail from UCLA ITS infographic – see full image below

Enjoy this clear insightful road pricing infographic from the UCLA Institute of Transportation Studies.

As Metro moves forward with plans for new tolled ExpressLanes on the 405, 105, and 605 Freeways and extended facilities on the 110 and 10 Freeways, some critics assert that these facilities will be unfair to lower income drivers. UCLA ITS debunks these critiques, demonstrating that existing ways to pay for car-centric transportation systems are generally even worse for the poor.
