ECONOMIC EFFECTS ON SOCIETY FROM REDUCED PRIVATE CAR TRANSPORT

SAMHAELLSEKONOMISKA EFFEKTER AV EN REDUCERING AV PERSONBILSTRAFIKEN

This report was presented at a symposium in Stockholm in October 1980. Economic effects on society from various traffic policy measures on private transport are analysed. It is concluded that a transfer of 10% of private car transport would necessitate more than 50% increase in public transport capacity, causing a cost of 4 to 12 billion krona. Car pooling should be stimulated by means of economic incentives and traffic regulations, resulting in economic savings to society. (TRRL)
