NATIONAL ECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF TRAFFIC SYSTEMS - A CAB TRACK SYSTEM IN VAESTERAAS

SAMHAELLSEKONOMISK ANALYS AV TRAFIKSYSTEM - SPAARTAXI I VAESTERAAS

A method for the analysis of traffic systems from a national economic viewpoint is described; it involves taking whole traffic system into consideration and investigating alternative traffic solutions with different public transport systems. In the evaluation all factors that are affected should be accounted for. The proposed methodology is applied to a case study for a Swedish town, Vaesteraas, involving a new means of public transport, a cab track system, which the authors find technically possible and fully realizable in this town in 1990. Three alternatives, reflecting different courses of development have been analyzed in the report, for the year 1990; the first is an extension of the present trend, that is car traffic dominating, the second includes the introduction of a cab track system as a public means of transport, the third furthermore includes a forced limitation of private car traffic. Economic and other consequences are discussed. /TRRL/
