  1. 1. Aspects of Static Multi-Class Traffic equilibria under Congestion Pricing

    Author : Per Olov Lindberg; Lars-Göran Mattsson; David Watling; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; traffic; congestion pricing; equilibria; marginal social cost; Other civil engineering and architecture; Övrig samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur;

    Abstract : Congestion charging is a now accepted means of influencing traffic to behave in a more socio-economic optimal way, like e.g. in the Stockholm project. Already early work, in the 1920’s, showed that road use can be inefficient due externalities, i. READ MORE

  2. 2. Designing Urban Road Congestion Charging Systems : Models and Heuristic Solution Approaches

    Author : Joakim Ekström; Jan Lundgren; Anders Karlström; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : transport modeling; congestion pricing; network design; bi-level optimization; toll locations; traffic assignment; user equilibrium; collection cost; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The question of how to design a congestion pricing scheme is difficult to answer and involves a number of complex decisions. This thesis is devoted to the quantitative parts of designing a congestion pricing scheme with link tolls in an urban car traffic network. READ MORE

  3. 3. Welfare Effects of Transport Policies : an analysis of congestion pricing and infrastructure investments

    Author : Jonas Westin; Lars-Göran Mattsson; Lars Hultkrantz; KTH; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; congestion charge; cost-benefit analysis; tax distortions; transport investment; transport policies; welfare effects; Economics; Nationalekonomi; Civil engineering and architecture; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur; SRA - Transport; SRA - Transport;

    Abstract : Interactions between the transport market and other distorted markets, such as the labor market, can have a large impact on the overall welfare effect of a road pricing policy or a congestion charge. Many road pricing studies therefore try to incorporate effects from other distorted markets in the analysis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Implementing Road Pricing : Standards, Institutions, Costs, and Public Acceptance

    Author : Carl J. Hamilton; Jonas Eliasson; Robert Lindsey; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Much has been researched and written about road pricing, and especially how it affects traffic flow, congestion, the environment, and social welfare in general. This doctoral thesis analyses the implementation of road user charges rather than its effects. The dissertation consists of five separate papers, each addressing a subset of the topic. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling and Appraisal in Congested Transport Networks

    Author : Jens West; Maria Börjesson; Oded Cats; Leonid Engelsson; Giulio Cantarella; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Transport modelling; Transit Assignment; Appraisal; Congestion; Crowding; Cost-benefit analysis; Value of time; Congestion charge; Dynamic traffic assignment; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Appraisal methodologies for congestion mitigation projects are relatively less well developed compared to methodologies for projects reducing free flow travel times. For instance, static assignment models are incapable of representing the build-up and dissipation of traffic queues, or capturing the experienced crowding caused by uneven on-board passenger loads.
