Get this from a library. Modal traffic impacts of waterway user charges. [David L Anderson; Robert W Schuessler; Peter A Cardellichio; United States. Office of Transportation Economic Analysis.; Transportation Systems Center.]. The method used to estimate potential user charge impacts consisted of the following sequence: 1, Simulate base-year transportation markets to estimate equilibrium prices, traffic volumes, and modal shares in the absence of waterway user charges.

Estimate impacts of user charges on costs to the inland waterway towing industry. The principal impacts examined are changes in waterway transportation costs and modal shares of interregional freight traffic.

Impacts of user charges are found to vary considerably throughout the waterway network based on the type of fee, the level of cost recovery, existing (without user charges) towing industry costs, and the waterway.

The report has considered waterway user charges, which have been proposed as a method of cost recovery of Federal expenditures. The report has examined possible modal carrier and traffic impacts due to user charges on the inland river system, and potential differential effects of Author: David L.

The projected impact of inland waterway user charges on grain flows and transport costs in The impact of inland waterway user changes on transport costs, origin-destination routing, modal traffic share and modal revenue generated from shipments of grain are estimated utilizing a linear programming model.

A solution to the model. Jonkeren et al. () found in their study which focused on the impacts of climate change on the river Rhine that the effect of low water levels on modal split is limited. They estimated that the majority of the freight lost in IWW will be transported by road transport (around 70%) with negative impacts on the environment (higher emissions.

The Inland Waterway Revenue Act of (Public Law ) established a surcharge on fuel consumed in the transportation of commodities by commercial inland waterway users. Initiated at four cents per gallon on October 1, the surcharge is scheduled to increase to ten cents per gallon by the navigation season.

Revenues generated from the user tax have been earmarked to finance the. China - Forward with one spirit: a strategy for the transport sector (English) Abstract.

The Ports and Inland Waterway System The U.S. marine freight system consists of waterways and ports, including inland ports and ocean ports.

Ocean port infrastructure is managed by various public and private port authorities funded primarily through user fees. shifting traffic from roads to inland waterway trans-port and of improving navigability had not been achieved.

Betweenwhen this objective was set, andthe year for which the latest statistical information is available, the modal share of inland waterway transport did not increase substantially, fluctuating around 6 %.

imposition of waterway user charges will reduce tha tax-~iabi_lity _of consumers. However, the extent to which expected benefits will be dissipated by higher consumer prices is of significant interest. Thus, governmental officials have an incentive to investigate the economic effects of various methods of financing the inland waterway systems.

User and Provider Impacts Page 1. 1 Introduction Impacts on transport users and providers typically make up the majority of benefits for transport business cases. This TAG unit builds on the guidance on principles of cost-benefit analysis in transport appraisal in TAG Unit A – Cost Benefit Analysis and provides specific guidance on how.A modal shift involves the growth in the demand of a transport mode at the expense of another, although a modal shift can involve an absolute growth in both concerned modes.

The comparative advantages behind a modal shift can be in terms of costs, convenience, speed or reliability. The number of vehicles, the axle loads and the kilometres traveled are dependent on the user charge and the various reactions of shippers and hauliers to different magnitudes of user charges.

The summary of the impact analyses, which is given in the following, gives some insight to the complexity of this interactive modeling scheme.
