Abstract

Estimating benefits of travel demand management measures E. ~ani~uchi' and H. Hirao Department of Civil Engineering Systems, Kyoto University, Japan Abstract This paper presents models for estimating benefits considering the uncertainty of travel times by implementing travel demand management measures including park and ride systems and road pricing. The models are composed of drivers' behavioural model and dynamic traffic simulation. The models were applied to a test road and railway network in Kyoto-Osaka area, Japan. Results indicated that commuting drivers can expect both benefits by reducing travel times as well as reducing variation of travel times by implementing park and ride systems. 1 Introduction We are currently faced with increasing level of traffic congestion and environmental problems in urban areas due to increase of transport demands. Some travel demand management (TDM) schemes including park and ride systems and road pricing have been proposed and implemented in many cities
