Evaluating the public procurement of bus transports in terms of emissions and costs
2009 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
The contracts resulting from a public procurement of bus transports in Sweden are very detailed. The specifications of, for example, used bus sizes can lead to unnecessary large buses in the sense that many of them are half empty. Other public procurement processes that could result in more flexible and less specified contracts and in turn reduced CO2-emissions will therefore be tested and evaluated by optimization models. Computational results from a large Swedish bus transport company are reported.
