A LINK-BASED VARIATIONAL INEQUALITY MODEL FOR DYNAMIC DEPARTURE TIME/ROUTE CHOICE

The dynamic user-optimal (DUO) departure time and route choice problem is to determine travelers' best departure times and route choices at each instant of time. In this paper, the authors present a link-based variational in equality (VI) formulation for the DUO departure time/route choice problem so that route enumeration can be avoided in both the formulation and the solution procedure. The model extends the previous VI model for the DUO route choice problem to the case where both departure time and route over a general road network must be chosen simultaneously. By proving the necessity and sufficiency of this VI, the authors establish the equivalence of the VI formulation and the link-based DUO departure time/route choice conditions.
