Real-time, Targeted Incentives for Strategic Travelers

New communication technologies allow targeted network control aimed at reducing congestion by identifying, in real time, alternative routes for travelers. In current practice, such measures involve messages broadcast to all (or many) travelers, or tolls which are assessed identically among vehicles. A more finessed approach has the potential of reducing congestion while alleviating some of the social equity concerns with tolling, or concerns about over-reaction to real-time travel information.
