The day-to-day dynamics of departure-time decisions of urban commuters and the underlying behavioral mechanisms determining user responses to dynamically varying time-dependent congestion patterns are addressed. A conceptual model is presented incorporating the boundedly-rational notion of an indiffernce band of tolerable schedule delay. The results of an experiment involving real commuters interacting daily within a simulated traffic corridor are examined, with particular emphasis on the dynamics of user behavior.
