This webinar is sponsored by the Pacific Southwest Region University Transportation Center (UTC) and the METRANS Transportation Center.


The cost-sharing problem has largely been neglected in the literature. In this webinar, we identify the desirable properties of a good cost-sharing mechanism and propose specific mechanisms for the static scenario where all information for the passengers is known in advance. We also analyze their advantages and disadvantages so that transportation planners can select according to their different needs.
