The objective of this study is to incorporate anticipated
congestion in an individual-specific demand framework using
random utility theory. In this process the notion of
interdependent utility functions will be utilized and
implemented in a relatively simple econometric structure. The
model will be illustrated in an empirical application to
wilderness recreation in which congestion plays a key role in
recreation site choice behaviour.
