|Abstract: ||Two bi-level programming modelsdan operational model and a planning modeldfor the intercity
passenger transport systems under sustainability contexts are proposed in this study. In the upper-level
models, the government (regulator) aims to provide the transport infrastructures and to regulate the
fares (tolls) to achieve some sustainability objectives, indexed by energy consumption, air pollution,
traffic safety, and travel time. In the lower-level models, the transport carriers aim to determine the
service frequencies to maximize their profits; whereas the users aim to choose available transport modes
to maximize their utilities. The rationales for the proposed models are based on the behavioral
conjectures in game theory. A case of 400-km intercity passenger transport (e.g., TaipeieKaohsiung in
the western corridor of Taiwan) is exemplified with sensitivity analysis. The results indicate that rail
transport is the priority mode toward overall sustainability for intercity passenger transport. Based on
the results, some policy implications are addressed.
