Research Report 140 Passenger transport contracting issues: output-based funding and area contracts

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

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.

Keywords: output based funding, subsidised deregulation, passenger transport, contracts
