Why modeling of heavy goods vehicles matters when designing congestion pricing schemes
2013 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Other academic)
Differentiated tolls for cars and heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) may improve the efficiency of congestion pricing schemes. Not only do private trips by car and commercial activities by HGV differ in how the time is valued by the user/operator, in general, one additional truck will also contribute to the congestion more than one additional car. In this paper we show how different modeling approaches for HGV route choice and demand may affect the evaluation of road pricing schemes. Also, we provide a small example to illustrate potential problems, and present results for a larger model of the German city Stuttgart.
