This paper presents a multi-purpose tool to assess transport investments in congestible facilities. The model can handle any combination of passenger and freight transport modes in a simplified network. Within each mode, there can be competing operators. It is calibrated to a given traffic forecast and can be used to assess the benefits and costs of combinations of strategic pricing behavior and investment. The use of the model is illustrated with examples.
