Abstract: This study developed a mixed-equilibrium model and tradeoff analysis to consider the implementation of route planning and guidance (RPG) services. Three perspectives were considered: the users, the service providers, and the traffic management agency. Each of these parties has distinctive objectives that are often in conflict with each other. By modeling the market penetration of RPG services in an elastic manner, analogous to a supply-demand equilibrium, and overlaying these objectives on the same decision plane, the technique allows one to balance these objectives and come up with sustainable RPG services. The model could also be used to investigate the sensitivity of different government policies toward these RPG services. Numerical results of a small network are provided to discuss the tradeoff analysis in detail.
