An investigation is given to a behavioral analysis of automobile users applying congestion toll theory for the purpose of maintaining the efficiency of transportation system. A case study is performed for the city of Seoul, where modal split behavior of automobile user groups is analysed in various level of congestion toll. Automobile users are grouped with respect to their income levels and work shift times. Automobile user behavior is then explained against the field data. A Logit-type model is applied for modal split changes through the application of congestion toll. It is found in the case study that the users in the monthly income bracket of 1.0~1.5 million won is the most predictable group whose work travel time begins 7:00~9:00 a.m. It is also found in the study that 1,000~1,500 won of congestion toll whould reduce the auto use as much as 5%.
