Abstract

 The effects of the rolling blackouts conducted after the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, on railway service in the Tokyo Metropolitan Area (TMA) were analyzed in terms of passengers' generalized traveling costs. We employed the hyperpath-based route assignment model proposed by Spiess and Florian (1989) to compute the costs. Applications to the TMA's rail network indicated that the effects of the rolling blackouts varied across the areas and days. In particular, passengers from inland areas would have had larger disadvantages while passengers from seaside areas would have received less impact.
