On the convergence of driver centric zone pricing for traffic networks
Paper in proceeding, 2018

Congestion fees with dynamical zone pricing provide an easy-to-implement solution to urban traffic control agencies for improved efficiency of the traffic network. In order to design a pricing strategy it is necessary to understand how it affects the route choices of drivers in the system. This work explores this question by providing an idealized dynamical model for re-routing as traffic flows change to cheaper routes. Results show a convergence to a Wardrop-equilibrium, which is also proven formally and demonstrated via simulation.
