EFFECTS OF DEREGULATION ON SERVICE CO-ORDINATION IN THE METROPOLITAN AREAS

The paper examines the impact of deregulation on service co-ordination in the British conurbations outside London. It examines the different forms of co-ordination developed in the decade preceding 1985 and the changes which have taken place as a result of deregulation. The general picture is that co-ordination decreased significantly in respect of timetables, fares and passenger information in particular of the period immediately following deregulation. Since then some aspects of co-ordination have improved, showing that the market can provide a limited degree of co-ordination. On balance, the author's judgement is that there has been a net decrease in consumer welfare. (Author/TRRL)
