Optimization of traffic and Facilities

What are the costs to others of an extra car in the traffic queue, and how can they be brought home to the individual? The author argues that tolls and differential charges are essential to the efficient use and development of urban transport facilities. He discusses also the husbandry of equipment and allocation of land for transportation.

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.
