THE MARGINAL COST TAXATION OF A TRANSPORTATION NETWORK

The paper shows that if the cost and demand functions satisfy certain weak smoothness conditions then the marginal cost taxation of a transportation network is optimal in the usual local sense. Interactions between the cost of travel along a link and flow along other links and between the demand for travel along a route and flow along other routes are permitted. (a) (TRRL)
