In recent years, researchers have become increasingly interested in the effects of introducing different road pricing measures on transportation networks. Who is involved in decision-making and how should decisions be made? How will travelers change their travel behavior after the introduction of road pricing? How will travelers interact with each other and how can the road authority influence or even control travel behavior of travelers? To answer such questions we need to establish a flexible and generic framework for analyzing the behavior of travelers as well as the road authority. This contribution concerns game theory, which provides such a framework for modeling decision-making processes in which multiple players are involved with different objectives, rules of the game and assumptions.
