Some theoretichal aspects of distance deterrence functions in modeling journeys to work Glenn, Paul ; Thorsen, Inge ; Uböe, Jan

By: Glenn, PaulContributor(s): Thorsen, Inge | Uböe, JanPublication details: Transport systems: Organization and planning, 2000; 3rd KFB research conference, June 13-14, 2000.

Commuting will be the preferred choice of a worker whenever he can obtain an increase in wages greater than the cost of commuting. Our framework is based on an approach where workers apply for jobs according to a strategy that maximises their expected payoffs (wages minus commuting costs). We also discuss systematic bias in comparing distances between city centres with the actual average travelling difference between intra-zonal and external commuting.
