Consumer Response to Road Pricing: Macro and Micro Modeling Tools for Socioeconomic Evaluation and Pricing of Managed Lanes

This study of the metropolitan Atlanta I-85 Express Lanes employs trip characteristics, facility operating conditions, and household demographics to provide a comprehensive overview of Express Lane users and their decision-making processes. The results are used to create a socioeconomic impact assessment tool at the macroscopic level and, at the microscopic level, a demand-modeling tool that can examine the response of consumers to different toll levels as a function of facility operating conditions and user demographics for forthcoming Express Lane implementations. The resulting applications will use the abundant data generated by the Express Lanes to impact current and future decision making.
