2015 (English)In: Handbook of research methods and applications in transport economics and policy / [ed] Chris Nash, Northampton, MA: Edward Elgar Publishing, 2015, p. 260-308Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter aims at outlining pricing policy for public transport that maximizes the social surplus, that is, the sum of the producer surplus and the consumer surplus, while internalizing possible system-external costs. It starts by presenting the door-to-door transport cost as a key concept in price theory for public transport, and then first principles of optimal pricing valid for all modes of public transport are laid down. These principles are applied to urban (short-distance) public transport in sections 13.2–13.5 and to inter-urban (long-distance) public transport in section 13.6. Section 13.7 summarizes the methodological conclusions.

Abstract [en]

In this journal the myth of the advancing service economy was exposed already in 1977 by Jonathan Gershuny, "POST-INDUSTRIAL SOCIETY: The myth of the service economy", Futures, April 1977. However, that lesson seems to be forgotten, because with the traditional production sector division in the national accounts, based on the nature of the work, the statistics of relative value added and employment continue to support the old myth.

In this paper it is shown that from the point of view of final output use, the ratio of the total value of the output of material goods to the total value of the output of immaterial services is 63:37 in Sweden, and has remained the same for 30 years. This is nearly the reverse of what is officially maintained based on the growing proportion of work in the economy which can be characterized as "service work". It is argued here that the conventional view obscures a main issue for the future of the welfare states. Sweden and several other similar countries have got far behindhand as regards the proportion of resources going into the provision of income-elastic services like health and education, which is just the opposite of the original main idea of the welfare state.

Abstract [en]

In this article the post war development of public transport demand in the town of Linköping is explained using time series analysis. It is found that the dramatic increase in public transport demand between 1946 and 1983, at least in part, can be explained by the rapid increase in female labour force participation and the expansion of the city’s outer areas. After that, female labour force participation decreased slightly and the town expansion has stopped. Without these positive forces to counterbalance the rising levels of car ownership public transport demand has fallen by 71%. The effects of a policy change, including peak-load pricing, straighter bus routes, smaller bus size and staggered school hours, is analysed. It is found that the proposed package would increase public transport travel by 42 % compared to present policy.

Abstract [en]

Excellent public transport which makes the private car a minority mode of central-city travel is a necessary condition for a political process towards the introduction of congestion charges. However, the charging system costs in London and Stockholm have proved to be unexpectedly high. Therefore, before these costs come down to an affordable level, zero-fares for central-city travel and stricter parking policy would be a first-best combination in many cities, always provided that the public transport is really competitive. A bold venture in public transport development is consequently the top priority irrespective of the transport pricing policy direction. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Abstract [en]

The workshop discusses and documents a number of countries' experiences regarding risk and reward in the delivery of public transport and determines the way in which competitive pressures actually work (or not) to deliver efficient and effective services. Papers are grouped into three main themes, i.e., public versus private management, negotiated versus competitively tendered contracts, and measures to improve performance. This chapter begins with a brief overview of each of the eight papers. This is followed by a section that out the discussions that emanated from the papers. Finally, the main policy and research recommendations are presented. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Abstract [en]

   In one volume, this book brings together a selection of the best papers presented at the 9th International Conference series on Competition and Ownership of Land Passenger Transport (known as the Thredbo Series). Thredbo is a premier international event that brings together academics, government policy makers, politicians, consultants and public transport operators to review the international developments in the theme area. As the most important international conference in this field of expertise, the series has more than 120 papers of well known authors and practitioners of Land Transport. Best papers from previous conferences were published in "T& F journal" and "Transport Reviews". Papers are reviewed and revised appropriately to ensure high quality. This book takes a practical approach by focusing on real world examples

    Argues that conventional economic theory is very focused on material goods markets. Taking the special character of services (immaterial goods) as the starting-point for the economic system analysis, this book offers a different view of the big problems of a mixed economy.
