The application of the concept of multiple user class equilibrium assignment to the modeling of route guidance systems is the concern of this paper. In particular, its role in modeling guided and unguided drivers is discussed, as well as its abilty to lead to guidance strategies that are effective even with a large proportion of drivers equipped. A review of previous route guidance model work is given. A multiple user class model of route guidance is then proposed and the properties of such a model are discussed. Finally, a presentation of simulation results obtained from such a model, for two real-life networks and for a number of route guidance scenarios, is given.
