Abstract or Summary
  • This paper investigates the potential welfare gains resulting from variable parking fees in the presence of heterogeneous agents. We begin by defining a modified linear city model with two lots located at separate distances from a central business district, and two types of agents with heterogeneous values of time. Agents maximize utility by minimizing transit costs, which include parameters dependent and independent of value of time. Simulation is used to model how various specifications affect the average travel costs, focusing on contrast between uniform pricing and variable pricing. We conclude by discussing the conditions which create a net welfare gain in light of a pricing gradient.
