On 16 May 2017 TRAIL PhD student Erik-Sander Smits successfully defended his thesis ‘Strategic Network Modelling for Passenger Transport Pricing’ at Delft University of Technology.
Innovative pricing measures for passenger transport, such as congestion
charging, can change travellers’ behaviour, and have the potential to
make the transport system more sustainable. This dissertation presents
a holistic strategic modelling framework to assess innovative pricing
measures on transport networks. A game theoretical approach allows
analysis of the decision making process of multiple stakeholders.
In addition, in-depth analyses of macroscopic node models and route
choice models are provided.
