COMMERCIAL SPEED, PRODUCTIVITY FACTOR OF URBAN PUBLIC TRANSPORT

LA VITESSE COMMERCIALE, FACTEUR DE PRODUCTIVITE DES TRANSPORTS EN COMMUN URBAINS

It has been observed that commercial speed has a direct influence on drivers' salary, the latter accounting for approximately three quarters of the overall operating costs of public transport networks. It is obvious that this fact, often ignored by public authorities that have the power of decision as regards many transport problems, should be given wide publicity in all interested circles. The aim of this article is to review all significant factors which have to be examined by people responsible for transport networks so as to facilitate their efforts to attain the goal set up for them, e.g. Better service for urban populations and reduction in the operating costs of urban public transport.
