The book explains the use of simple, quantitative methods to solve problems in transport economics, and introduces the principles of economic analysis. Special attention is paid to the concepts and methods common to all forms of public enterprise. Actual case studies such as bus pricing and subsidies are used in order to make the relevance of theory clear. The topics covered include consumer behaviour, producers, welfare economics, pricing policy, economic evaluation and planning, queueing and regulation. (TRRL)
