CONGESTION, DENSITY, AND THE USE OF LAND IN TRANSPORTATION

A MODEL IS DERIVEWD OF RESIDENTIAL DENSITY EQUILIBRIUM AND RENT GRADIENT IN A MONOCENTRIC CITY IN WHICH TRANSPORTATION COST DEPENDS ONLY ON THE DISTANCE FROM THE CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT AND INCOME IS EQUALLY DISTRIBUTED. THE MODEL IS GENERALIZED TO ALLOW FOR CONGESTION COSTS, SO THAT TRANSPORTATION COST DEPENDS NOT ONLY ON THE DISTANCE COVERED, BUT ALSO ON THE DENSITY OF TRAFFIC. AN EXAMPLE OF A SOLUTION IS GIVEN FOR ONE SPECIAL CASE. IT IS SHOWN HOW, WITH THIS MODEL, THE OPTIMUM ALLOCATION OF LAND BETWEEN TRANSPORTATION USE AND RESIDENTIAL USE CAN BE DETERMINED. MORE GENERAL MODELS-ESPECIALLY MODELS IN WHICH INCOME IS NOT EQUALLY DISTRIBUTED-CAN BE DERIVED BASED ON THE ABOVE PRINCIPLES. /TRRL/
