Strategic Network Modelling for Passenger Transport Pricing

This thesis discusses how congestion is increasing and train capacity is shrinking during peak hours in the Netherlands because the economy is growing and the world is facing environmental challenges due to emissions from travelers. If travelers choose to avoid traveling during peak hours, the capacity of the transport system improves. Passenger transport pricing can be an incentive for travelers to change choices which will mitigate congestion, emissions and other undesirable issues. When a transit system has different prices for times of the day, and for different locations, travelers choices related to route, mode and departure time can change. By changing choices, the overall performance of the transport system improves.
