The application of just distribution theories to financing integrated systems of regional and urban public transport

The paper presents how to apply and use principles of the non-market allocation of goods and distribution in public transport systems. In most countries, regional and local public transport is a public service, whose availability should be ensured, with originating deficits financed by the public authorities. In the course of this service provision, problems can result from financing the deficit by various entities, e.g., municipalities and municipality groups, as well as participation by district and voivodeship self-governments in agreements related to the common organization of public transport and unified tariff-ticket systems. Based on local justice theory, this paper sets out principles that can be the foundation of deficit financing system development, including the analysis of their practical application to financing integrated public transport systems.
