Research Report 105 Public transport value for money measures

Published: | Category: Transport demand management , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

This project was an initial examination of means of assessing the value for money being achieved from individual publicly-funded transport services. The feasibility of a national system to derive passenger kilometres and/or passenger boardings per $ subsidy for all contracted services at the route/time period or contract level was assessed. This involved a pilot study of two regions to identify data problems and analysis difficulties. Conclusions were drawn from this pilot study for a national system.

Keywords: Public transport, performance measures, value for money
