Abstract [en]

In this paper, a discrete penalty for excessive travel times is introducedinto scheduling models whose maximal expected utilities have attractivetheoretical features of linearity in standard deviation or variance. Theextended models maintain the properties of linearity, and its maximalexpected utility depends on the shape of the travel time distribution.The value of travel time and its variability could be measured indirectlyby the scheduling preferences. The results from empirical data revealthat the extended models, with such a discrete penalty, provide a highlysignificant better goodness of fit to the data. Furthermore, introducingthe penalty for excessive travel time has a strong effect on the estimatesof the other scheduling parameters, thus affecting the valuations of traveltime. Our findings indicate that, apart from the mean and standarddeviation (or variance), individuals value other characteristics of traveltime distribution, in particular the probability of excessive travel time.

4. Scheduling choices under rank dependent utility maximization

2012 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation only (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Scheduling preferences, derived under the assumption of expected utilitymaximization, can be used for measuring value of travel time variability.As an alternative to expected utility maximization, rank dependent utilityis chosen in this paper. Considering a flexible probability weighting forranked outcomes, two frequently applied scheduling models are derived,and estimated on a data set with specific travel time distributions. Optimisticrespondents are observed. Allowing for heterogeneity of schedulingpreferences improves the model performance significantly. We also foundevidence for valuing excessive travel time, which is not included in thetraditional scheduling model specifications.
