Abstract: This paper proposes a time-dependent network equilibrium model that simultaneously considers a traveler's choice of departure time, route, parking location and parking duration in road networks with multiple user classes and multiple parking facilities. In the proposed model, travelers are differentiated by their trip purpose and parking duration, parking locations are characterized by facility type and parking charge, and the decision-making process of travelers on travel and parking choices is assumed to follow a hierarchical choice structure. The model is formulated as a variational inequality problem, and is solved by a heuristic solution algorithm. Numerical results for two example networks are presented to show the solution quality and investigate the solution sensitivities to some input data. It is found that parking behavior is significantly affected by travel demand, walking distance, parking capacity, and parking charge. The proposed model provides a useful tool for studying the complex temporal and spatial interaction between road traffic and parking congestion, and can be used to assess the effects of various parking policies and infrastructure improvements at a strategic level.
