THE BENEFITS OF MINIBUSES. THE CASE OF KUALA LUMPUR

The introduction of 400 minibuses in Kuala Lumpur (population approximately one million) makes possible an analysis of the net benefits of this policy change. On conservative assumptions it is shown that the value of benefits was US $10 million per annum, or US $17 per head of the adult population - almost 1% of the per capital income. This value is surprisingly large, and suggests that the same policy might show a similar gain in other countries.(a) (TRRL)
