Abstract

This paper explores how the information diffusion process influences travel demand. A general model requiring only data on aggregate demand over time is proposed. This model is consistent with plausible behavior at the level of the individual traveler. The model is appropriate for the case of a once-and-for-all structural change in the transportation system. The econometric problems of estimating the parameters of the model are considered, and forms for the information diffusion process are derived.
