Article
Traffic congestion threats the growth and vitality of cities. Policy measures like punishments or rewards often fail to create a long term remedy. The rise of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) enable provision of travel information through advanced traveler information systems (ATIS). Current ATIS based on shortest path routing might...

System optimum is usually referred to as a theoretical traffic assignment, whose main use is comparison to user equilibrium. In this paper, we investigate an advanced travel information service (ATIS) that provides the travelers system optimal routing signals, so that if all travelers comply with the signal, system optimum is achieved. We present a...
Article
Cooperation is an emergent social state related to the dynamics and complexity of road traffic and is reinforced through adaptive learning. Game theory and research in behavioural economics provide ample evidence that cooperation can efficiently solve social dilemmas similar to traffic congestion in dynamic settings. Traffic theory, asserts User Eq...

Investments in bike-sharing and cycling infrastructures are justified for contributing towards more sustainable mobility in cities. Harvesting data from passive sources has important potential for better understanding the spatial patterns of human movements in urban areas including cycling. We explore data obtained from the Tel Aviv bike-sharing sy...

The System Optimum, an optimal traffic assignment that minimizes the total travel costs on the road network is usually only referred to as a comparison to self-emerging user equilibrium. In this paper we investigate how different behavioral aspects of drivers can self-organize towards a system optimum that minimizes travel costs while providing ben...

ParkGame is a GIS-based computer game for studying how drivers cruise for parking in the city. While cruising, drivers need to account simultaneously for several factors – time of arrival, convenience of a parking place, parking prices and walk distance to a destination. The game setup is very flexible allowing to design different kinds of experime...
Article
The engineering view of a measurable, supply-independent, demand for parking that can be expressed by “minimum parking codes” has been generally rejected during the last two decades and is gradually being replaced by “maximum provision” codes, limited parking development, and demand pricing. To assess new planning practices one has to estimate the...
Data
Every car trip ends with a parking search and parking. However, current transportation research still lacks practical tools and methodologies to analyze parking needs and dynamics, which cannot be adequately performed at an aggregate level. PARKFIT, a novel algorithm that is based on a spatially explicit high-resolution view of the inherently heter...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A car trip is over only when the driver parks near the destination. Urban traffic models focus on vehicles driving from origins to destinations, but take it for granted that the driver would eventually park. This is not always easy. Parking is a critical component of a trip and the lack of parking, or non-balanced pricing can be the reason of co...
Article
This article proposes two models to analyse parking search: an analytical model called PARKANALYST and a geosimulation model, termed PARKAGENT, which explicitly accounts for street network and drivers' parking-related decisions. We employ both models to analyse the impact of occupancy rate and demand-to-supply ratio on cruising for parking and to c...
Chapter
Full-text available
Virtually all major cities around the world face severe parking problems in their centers. While existing models of parking search and choice behavior do provide insight into the basic dynamics of parking in cities, as well as into the phenomenon of drivers cruising for on-street parking, virtually all models discussed in the literature ignore a nu...
