Biography

Jonas Eliasson is the Director of the Centre for Transport Studies. His research interests include transport modeling, appraisal and cost-benefit analysis, valuation of non-market goods (e.g. travel time and intrusion effects), transport policy, transport planning and road pricing. He has been heavily involved in the design, planning and evaluation of the Stockholm congestion charges, and is frequently engaged as an advisor to other cities considering congestion pricing systems. He has been responsible for the modeling and appraisal of several major Swedish infrastructure investments, and is currently chairing the committee for transport modeling and cost-benefit analysis of the National Transport Investment Plan.
