The study discusses the effects of the changing structure of transport pricing in the process of population redistribution in urban development. Theoretical and modelling frameworks are provided so that these changes can be evaluated in a dynamic and interactive manner. The model developed marks a departure from disaggregated conventional models of urban structure and shows versatility and flexibility in simulating a variety of external conditions. A second model, based on kinetic theory and time-oriented accounting frameworks, has also been developed in parallel with the logistic model described. This alternative model has as key concepts - house vacancies, travel costs and traffic congestion in defining the relative attractiveness of zones. (TRRL)
