Modelling Impacts of Tolling Systems with Multiple User Classes.

Stewart, Kathryn


Kathryn Stewart



This paper extends the formulation for SSO to include MUCs (where the different groups of drivers are assigned different generalised cost functions), such that total perceived network travel costs for all classes are minimised and presents an objective function for MUCSSO. Marginal social cost price (MSCP) tolling is examined for differing user classes, and the possibility of reduced (or minimal) revenue tolling strategies to produce the same effect is illustrated. The possibility of producing toll sets that apply to less than the total number of user groups, but still result in the MUCSSO flow pattern being achieved is considered.
