Sustrans Cymru - an organisation that promotes greener transport - has condemned the potential M4 Toll as "poor value for money".
A spokesman said that a "more cost effective way to reduce congestion would be to invest in shifting these journeys to public transport."
"The Welsh Government acknowledges that 40% of journeys on this stretch of the M4 are local trips of under 20 miles," he added.
