Abstract of the Article
The induction of demand by increasing the efficiency of a production or consumption process is
known as the rebound effect. Feedback loops in System Dynamics can be used to conceptualize
the structure of this complex phenomenon and also for communicating model-based insights. In
passenger transport, the rebound effect can be induced through increased cost efficiency (direct
economic rebound) and/or increase in speed (time rebound). In this paper we review and compare
two models on environmental effects of passenger transport—including a model on the role of
information and communication technology. We highlight the feedback mechanisms used to deal
with the rebound effect (price, efficiency, and time rebound).
