REPORT OF THE THIRTY-FIFTH ROUND TABLE ON TRANSPORT ECONOMICS HELD IN PARIS ON 28TH AND 29TH OCTOBER 1976 ON THE FOLLOWING TOPIC: ORGANISATION OF REGIONAL PASSENGER TRANSPORT

This paper was presented as a basis for discussion among transport economists taking part in a round table on transport economics organised by the European Conference of Ministers of Transport. The author advanced a number of theses, related to regional transport needs, the organisation of undertakings, the role of the authorities, regular special-purpose services, the function of national railways, intermediate modes of transport and fares. A summary of the discussion is presented, which concluded that in many cases, the methods of providing transport needed to be revised, and that the money spent on running scheduled services would often suffice to finance a system which was more individualised and better suited to meet demand. A list of participants to the round table is appended. (TRRL)
