In this study, a mixed-equilibrium model and tradeoff analysis is developed to consider the implementation of route planning and guidance (RPG) services. Three perspectives are considered: users service providers, and a traffic management agency. It is understood that each of the perspectives has distinctive and potentially conflicting objectives. The market penetration of RPG services is modeled in an elastic manner and is analogous to a supply-demand equilibrium. The objectives are then overlaid on the same decision plane, thus allowing for the balancing of the objectives and planning sustainable RPG services. It is noted that the model can also be used to examine the sensitivity of different government policies toward RPG services. The authors present numerical results of a small network to discuss the tradeoff analysis in detail.
