Urban road toll systems are increasingly on the political agenda in order to achieve environmental, urban and traffic management as well as financial objectives. Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) as for example Global Positioning System (GPS) or Galileo may enhance the usability and also financial soundness of city road pricing and shall be included into the overall concept selection process – in spite of relatively high investment costs. As this contribution shows with a comprehensive evaluation scheme, for example GNSS-related toll systems may contribute to improved telematics and road pricing in cities.
