Abstract

A novel Tradable Credits Scheme (TCS) is approached to effectively control the urban commuters’ travel behaviors in this study. To analyze the travelers’ behaviors affected by the TCS, a residents' travel utility model is established. Under the constraint of travel expenses, we analyze commuters’ travel mode and discuss the relationship between supply and demand. The pricing of tickets is then explored for trading market regulation. A numerical example is further preformed to compare different commuters’ (characterized as different groups) behaviors. Results show that reasonable price is the premise of the market stability, and the TCS can improve the rate of public transport trip effectively.
