SUNDSVALLS TRAFIK AB - A STUDY OF INCOME FROM TICKETS AND FARES FOLLOWED BY A PLAN FOR A NEW TICKET AND FARE SYSTEM

SUNDSVALLS TRAFIK AB - STUDIUM AV BILJETT- OCH TAXEINTAEKTER MED FOERSLAG TILL NYTT BILJETT- OCH TAXESYSTEM

Sundsvalls trafik ab (stab) is owned by the commune and takes care of the public transport in the sundsvall area. The company has been greatly affected by increased expenses, which it has not been able to manage. It was decided that this transport business should be investigated and the expenses and their development were one part of the investigation. The purpose was to obtain facts about the income from the ticket sale and fares, to simplify the ticket sale, and to study the effects of the fare changes regarding passenger number and income. Background material was gained from interviews and statistics, the company's bookkeeping and earlier investigations in this field. The result is that stab is in a similar situation as most transport companies. The distribution of the income is not noticeably different from the average. STAB has more ticket types than other companies and the prices are among the highest in the country. The ticket variety could be simplified. The zone-division has been unified. Seasonal variations have been established. Immediately after the fare changes the ticket sale went down, but gradually it reached a level just below the level before the changes. (TRRL)
