Urban Transport Market Theoretical Analysis.

By J.M. Preston, J.P. Toner and C.A. Nash


1.The Institute for Transport Studies (ITS) was commissioned by the Department of Transport (DoT), the Association of Metropolitan Authorities (AMA) and the Passenger Transport Executive Group (PTEG) to undertake this project in November 1992. \ud \ud 2.The objectives of this study were: \ud \ud (a)to establish a simple economic model of urban transport operations, based on present policies; \ud \ud (b)to estimate, using the model, the theoretically optimal form of intervention in urban rail under the present policy constraints, and differences between this optimum and current procedures; \ud \ud (c)to investigate how improved procedures might be implemented in practice in the light of the kind of data which are currently available or become available in the course of a Section 56 appraisal and to make suggestions for additional data collection. \u
