No US cities have a congestion charge although five US cities were being considered for a trial period back in 2007. London, the innovator of the congestion charge has seen substantial benefits from employing a congestion charge: $197 million in net revenue, reduced traffic in city center (although still quite congested), CO2 emissions fell 16% in the charge zone. However congestion charge is thought to be a tax in essence even though somewhat disguised; as we know tax is already sensitive issue amongst the American public. We also have bridge tolls in larger metropolitan areas; charging a congestion charge in addition to that would meet a lot of resistance.
