A MODEL FOR MEASURING THE IMPACT OF SUBSIDIES ON MASS TRANSIT EFFICIENCY
The paper develops a theory for the relationship between subsidy and efficiency in mass transportation. Wage per vehicle hour is used as a representative efficiency measure. A theory for the evolution of efficiency levels in transit organizations is developed, and the theory is used to identify the differences in efficiency that could occur between systems identical in every way except for the proportions of their revenues which come from fares and subsidies.
