After reviewing the value of information from a generic conceptual perspective, it develops specific formalizations of information value for the three types of PITA service. Any means of allocation has distributive implications. In his chapter (Equity dimensions of transport policy), Alain Trannoy argues that equity has been a much less central concept in transport than in other fields such as education, health or housing. He reviews the equity dimensions arising in the design of transport infrastructure, and discusses the relevance and implications of criteria such as maximum or minimum average distance.

The specification is attractive because it accounts for the large amount of crosshauling (that is, two-way trade in identical goods) observed in the data, and given that even at fine levels of activity disaggregation, most countries produce goods in all product categories. The simplest way to implement an Armington system is by assuming that all domestic agents buy units of a common composite basket composed of goods from all geographic origins. The composition and the price of this Armington good result as usual from cost minimization.

Marginal | is now the generalised cost per unit of travel, with utility of income. If s denotes travel, p hs | . The VTTS is the net wage, corrected for the preference term g /l representing VTTS w hs hs h the marginal utility of spending time with travel type s, translated into monetary units by the term 1/lh. Note that the VTTS now not only depends on the wage rate, but also on all prices, travel time, income and the time endowment. The larger ghs is, the more the VTTS is reduced compared to the specification without travel time in the utility function.
