Traffic Management under Boundedly Rational User Equilibrium
Day-to-day Toll Strategy
We consider the static traffic assignment model in which travelers are boundedly rational in their route choice. This assignment introduces uncertainty, since generally multiple Boundedly Rational User Equilibrium (BRUE) solutions exist. In this paper, we propose a day-to-day toll strategy that steers the network from an observed BRUE to a desired BRUE. We prove that the stationary state of this toll strategy is the desired flow, and we show by example that the strategy can achieve any flow.
