Numerical illustrations are provided here of the optimum when inward trip penetration is restricted, and the results of these numerical calculations are used to cast light on the validity of the basic assumptions (the price of traveling circumferentially through a radian would increase with distance from the city center; and the price of a trip between 2 points in the city's circumference would be minimized by making the circumferential segment of the trip at any distance from the city center at which price is stationary with respect to distance) concerning optimum optimorum trip prices. The model employed is summarized, the numerical algorithm is briefly described, and numerical illustrations of the optimum when trip penetration is restricted are presented. The results obtained in the latter are used to judge the validity of the pricing restrictions.
