Multi-Class Equilibrium Demand Synthesis

This paper develops a Multi-Class Equilibrium Demand Synthesis model that estimates freight pick-up and delivery tour flows in conjunction with a passenger car-trips origin-destination matrix, using traffic counts, passenger-trip generation, and freight trip generation as inputs to the estimation process. The resulting model, which explicitly considers congestion effects, is formulated as a bi-level optimization problem. The upper level is an entropy function that finds the most likely freight tour flows and passenger car origin-destination matrix. The lower level is a multi-class variational inequality user equilibrium condition for trucks and passenger cars. The performance of the formulation developed is assessed with numerical experiments.
