Performance Measurement Assesment of Transportation Systems

Publication type: Acrobat PDF

We summarize an integrated model of losses due to infrastructure failures, and provide example applications to discrete transportation facility failures and interruptions in electric power. The model estimates how these losses affect the metropolitan economy. This measurement accounts for direct, indirect, and induced costs that can result from infrastructure failures; and also the delay costs imposed by changes in  transportation network performance. The procedure advances the information provided by transportation and activity system analysis techniques in ways that help capture the most important economic implications of infrastructure failures. Transportation network costs and origin-destination requirements are modeled endogenously and consistently. Our overall research framework enables us to express these full costs in aggregate terms at a sub-metropolitan level as well as in a distributional sense.
