THE SECOND-BEST PRICING PROBLEM FOR URBAN TRANSIT SYSTEMS WITH ENVIRONMENTAL CONSTRAINTS

The paper focuses on urban transit pricing policies including financial support systems with environmental constraints. The changes in pricing for transit modes affect the modal split and congestion levels in road networks. This implies that the model for limiting discharge gases must reflect the optimal modal choice behavior of users. To estimate the variations in social welfare arising from the policy of limiting discharge gases, the second best pricing policy is modeled as mathematical programming with equilibrium constraints which include road congestion phenomena and environmental restrictions. The Ramsey principle rule is expanded as the framework of MPEC with environmental constraints. Finally, the improved pricing policy for urban transits is examined through numerical examples.
