1.201 / 11.545 / ESD.210 Transportation Systems Analysis: Demand and Economics Assignment 5 Problem 1 Wanna Buy the Brooklyn Bridge? Estimating Uncertainty in a Revenue Forecast The New York City Department of Transportation is considering leasing the Brooklyn Bridge to a private toll-road operator to raise revenues and offload the responsibilities for maintaining and operating the bridge. The consultants on the project, Modeling Bridges Associated (MBA), have used their fancy micro-simulation models to make a prediction for the yearly revenue that the private operator can expect to collect.

Please download the spreadsheet associated with this project from the class
