Implementation of Congestion Pricing, which is one the mechanisms of transportation demand management, has so far been successfully used throughout the world. In this study, it was aimed to measure the applicability of Congestion Pricing concept in Istanbul, Turkey. Taksim district of Istanbul was proposed as the implementation area. This is because high levels of congestion are being observed in Taksim. To understand responses of residents living in Yesilkoy (Istanbul) data are collected using stated preference surveys. Yesilkoy is chosen since it is close to the Istanbul Ataturk International Airport (IST) and hence is considered as a transfer point between IST and Taksim. Many trips between IST and Taksim involve the usage of the express jitneys between Yesilkoy and Taksim. Moreover, Yesilkoy is mainly a residential area and generate high number of jitney trips. Travel patterns and behavior of residents in Yesilkoy and attitudes towards Congestion Pricing are investigated.
