A Simulation of Price Discriminating Tolls

A Simulation of Price Discriminating Tolls

A computer simulation is used to compared uniform tolls on a congested facility against a price-discriminating toll scheme. The simulation illustrates that consumers would gain from discriminatory tolls. Price-discriminating user fees on crowded facilities with rationing by queues should be given due consideration.

Optimal Public transport Price and Service Frequency

Because values of time and passenger behaviour depend on the level of frequency it is found that: (1) in urban public transport there may be one low-deficit local optimum and one high-deficit local optimum, one of which is global; (2) contrary to what might be expected, optimal financial deficit per passenger is typically larger for high frequency services than for low-frequency services; (3) the optimal off-peak may exceed the optimal peak price.
