URBAN FREIGHT TRANSPORT POLICY CHANGES: IMPROVING DECISION MAKERS’ AWARENESS VIA AN AGENT-SPECIFIC APPROACH

Valerio Gatta and Edoardo Marcucci ()

No 114, Working Papers from CREI Università degli Studi Roma Tre

Abstract: This paper derives policy implications concerning a specifically developed questionnaire administration procedure aimed at eliciting agent-s pecific preferences for alternative policy variables with respect to the implementation of pol icy changes in the case of urban freight transport. In particular the research, based on the case of Rome’s Limited Traffic Zone, discusses alternative policy implementations whose impact can be tested ex-ante given the elicitation method adopted. After describing attribute definition and selection, questionnaire administration, data collection and treatment, will ingness to pay estimates are calculated. The paper tests, from a policy-maker’s perspective, the implications deriving from the presence of inter-agent heterogeneity and the specific composition of an improving and equally impacting policy on all agent-types’ utility. The paper shows how an agent-specific approach might increase decision makers’ awareness and help them taking better decisions.
