Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficiency of public transport operations undertaken in Swedish counties by the public transport authorities (PTA) taking into account the substantial differences in operating conditions between counties. The analysis will be performed through Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA) where yearly from 1986 to 2009 from 26 Swedish counties is used in order to estimate a cost frontier and analyse how the efficiency of the individual counties change over time. The results are used in order to provide a ranking (in terms of efficiency) of the Swedish public transport authorities that can provide a basis for benchmarking. It is concluded that the efficiency of the public transport providers fell in all counties during the observed time period. Defining cost efficiency as the ratio of minimum cost to observed cost, the overall (average) cost efficiency for the industry fell from 85,7 % during the eighties to 60,4 % during the period 2000 – 2009.
