ON THE ECONOMIC THEORY OF ROAD PRICING. TRAFFIC AND TRANSPORT POLICY BETWEEN RURAL AND URBAN AREA, TO AN INTEGRAL APPROACH ON REGIONAL LEVEL. TRANSPORTATION PLANNING COLLOQUIUM 1989, THE HAGUE, NOVEMBER 30 - DECEMBER 1, 1989. VOLUME I

OVER DE ECONOMISCHE THEORIE VAN HET REKENING RIJDEN

In this paper the optimal value of a congestion toll is studied under different circumstances: (1) the revenues will be divided over the total population, irrespective of the use that is made of the road; (2) the revenues will be given to those who don't use the road in their own car, e.g. By means of investment in public transport; (3) the revenues will be given to those who use the road in their own car, by means of an increase in road capacity. With the aid of a logit model for transportation demand it is shown that for each of these cases the optimal value of the congestion toll will be different. The way in which the revenues are spent is thus important for the determination of the height of the toll.(a) for the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 825702.
