Abstract : This paper presents a method for solving a stochastic version of the dynamic traffic assignment problem. It shows that a globally optimal solution may be obtained by a sequence of linear optimizations. A decomposition algorithm for this procedure is presented that efficiently solves large-scale problems. Solution examples with up to sixty-six thousand variables are described. Keywords: Stochastic programming; Traffic assignment; Multi-Stage problems.
