Evaluation of transportation investments.

ABSTRACT
This paper focuses on the evaluation of investment in transportation at the urban and metropolitan levels, taking into account the two main classes of instruments available to planning authorities: changes in transportation supply and the price system. After a short discussion of the two related concepts of users and system surplus, some rigorous micro-economic tools are introduced in order to represent the behaviour of operators and tripmakers. Firstly, considering given the supply of transportation, the process of allocation of users income and time is analysed under the assumption of full rationality. Then it is shown how alternative economic states resulting from different investment patterns in the transportation sector can be compared. Since pratical applications require several approximations, key issues which arise in an operative context are also identified and discussed.
