One of the major problems encountered by traffic professionals is how to predict driver route choices in congested and unreliable road networks. Indeed, traffic flow prediction is of fundamental importance for strategic transport planning, network design and long-term road improvement problems. A new reliability-based user equilibrium (RUE) model is proposed in this Chapter, premising on the fact that drivers consider both travel time and reliability in their route choices (Lam and Small, 2001).
