This chapter analyzes the costs and benefits of two primary modes of information acquisition: information search – for example by means of Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS) – and information acquisition via trial and error. Given rapid advances in ATIS technology it seems likely that ATIS will gain importance as a source of information although situations will remain in which trial and error is more cost-effective. In some contexts, such as transport on congested road networks, better information conveys benefits not only directly to travelers who receive it, but also indirectly through changes in the decisions of informed travelers to uninformed travelers as well.

Transport generates negative externalities within the transport sector itself – congestion – as well as outside the transport sector. Transport is in most cases not utility generating by itself, but it is instrumental for other activities such as working, shopping, tourism, visiting friends or events and so forth. Similarly, transport is not directly an input of firms, but instrumental for buying, selling or exchanging information. We first introduce transport demand of households depending on monetary cost as well as on travel time.
