Abstract

This study envisions that autonomous vehicles (AV) will be fully adopted in the future. In this context, when commuters travel to the city center with AVs, walking from parking to work is not needed anymore. AVs can drop off the commuters at the workplace and then drive themselves to parking. With this consideration, we model the choice equilibrium of departure time and parking location with the bottleneck model (Vickrey, 1969) to capture the congestion dynamics. We found that the commuting equilibrium is different from that in Arnott et al. (1991) when walking is needed. We also develop the first-best time-dependent congestion pricing scheme to achieve the system optimum, and compare the total system cost at the system optimum with that at the user equilibrium.
