Abstract

We compare alternative transportation policies to reduce emissions of pollutants from traffic. We develop a structural model of transportation mode choice with endogenous congestion. The model considers car trip durations are endogenous equilibrium outcomes from a transportation mode choice and the road congestion technology. We estimate the model using rich survey data on individual transportation habits combined with big data on trip durations from Uber and Google maps and high frequency traffic data for Paris area. We use this model to quantify the impacts of hypothetical transportation policies used to reduce car traffic and compare their distributional consequences.

Looking forward to seeing you all online,
