The report develops and analyses proposals for output-based funding (OBF) for passenger transport, including implications of output-based contracts, and the use of subsidised deregulation. Particular attention is given to reviewing area-based contracts as compared with route-based. It is concluded that OBF is likely to improve delivery of regional council objectives with regard to better meeting customer needs and increasing patronage.
