Transportation Network Design Methods under the Assumption of Elastic Demand

A transportation network design model is proposed in this paper and it is based on the assumption of elastic demand. Generally, this assumption is not considered in most network design models found in the literature. In the proposed model the authors limit the elasticity of demand only to mode choice and it can therefore be classified as a multimodal network design model. The proposed model is particularized for solving the transit fare optimization problem, for which the assumption of elastic demand is necessary, and tested on a real network.
