Abstract

In this paper, we develop a model of travel in a chain of trips joining several locations througha congested network. We develop a microscopic analysis of individual benefits obtained byspending time at each of the locations and costs incurred through travel between them. This iscombined with a macroscopic equilibrium model of travel during congested peak periods toshow how individuals? travel choices are influenced by the congestion that result fromcorresponding choices made by others. We show how different travellers can achieveidentical net utilities by making different combinations of choices within the equilibrium. Theresulting model can be used to investigate the effect on travel behaviour and individual utilityof various transport interventions, and we illustrate this by considering the effect of a peakperiodcharge that eliminates congestion.
