Road pricing as a means to manage traffic in Singapore has a long history, starting with a manual system in 1975 and then replaced with a DSRC-based road pricing system that offered improved convenience to motorists and improved effectiveness for the authority. This will be improved further when the GNSS-based road pricing system comes into operation from 2020 onwards and will double up to provide other value-added services such as the monitoring of traffic conditions and disseminating such traffic conditions to drivers on the roads to make the road network operate more effectively. While road pricing has been effective in Singapore for managing traffic, this approach to be adopted elsewhere has to be customized to suit the nature of the urban city as well as the culture and acceptance of the people.
