Pareto-Improving Strategies for Multimodal Transportation Networks with Trip Chaining

This paper presents a tour-based model for determining Pareto-improving policies in multimodal transportation networks. The policies refer to adjusting transit fares, charging tolls on highway links and providing additional capacity to the highway network using toll revenue. The policies will improve the social benefits without making any individual and transportation authority worse off when compared to the user equilibrium condition before the policy implementation. A mathematical program with complementarity constraints is formulated for finding such policies. The formulation is link-based and considers trip chaining behaviors. A numerical example is provided to demonstrate that Pareto improvement can be achieved by the policies and the tour-based model provides more accurate estimate of the socioeconomic impacts that transportation policies may impose.
