Congestion Management Solutions

Help travelers arrive at their destination faster and easier while reducing congestion and environmental impacts

Departments of transportation, parking agencies, and tolling agencies partner with Conduent Transportation to help reduce traffic congestion on highways, roads and at curbside.

Conduent Transportation’s congestion management solutions help cities and agencies manage traffic flow and congestion, while reducing their carbon footprints. When traffic gridlock is reduced in cities and across metropolitan regions, agencies can drastically improve mobility for commuters and travelers. And when congestion is under control, buses experience higher on-time rates —encouraging more people to use public transit.

Dynamic pricing in HOT lanes

Congestion pricing can help reduce pollution in significant ways*. Using proprietary algorithms and advanced analytics, Conduent Transportation partners with municipal leaders to set demand-based pricing for high occupancy toll (HOT) lanes based on current and projected demand, which helps drivers to choose less crowded areas or less congested times to travel and park.

Demand Pricing for Parking

  • Reduce circling for parking, which also reduces driver frustration and distraction
  • Reduce vehicle miles traveled, decreasing fuel consumption and carbon emissions
  • Synch parking availability with parking demand by charging less for parking spaces in less crowded nearby locations
  • Get commuters and travelers to their destinations quickly, easily and safely

By partnering with Conduent Transportation, cities can implement successful congestion management programs to:

  • Motivate commuters

    to travel during non-peak hours
    when HOT prices are lower

  • Reduce vehicle miles traveled

    decreasing fuel consumption
    and polluting emissions

  • Encourage more commuters
    and travelers

    to rely on public transit – less traffic
    congestion means buses and rideshares can arrive at their destination on time

  • Reduce stop-and-go traffic

    decreasing fuel consumed and emissions generated by constant or sudden accelerations and decelerations

  • Reduce idling

    caused by vehicles waiting to park
    or those stuck behind vehicles looking for parking spaces

  • Fund infrastructure improvements

    rather than adding lanes – road
    construction increases congestion,
    along with the likelihood of crashes

Our agency clients see the following results:

Reduction in traffic congestion by 30% and carbon emissions by 12% in first year
20+% increase in blocks at pricing equilibrium (availability meeting demand)
59% reduction in occupancy of peak spaces using dynamic pricing models
