INSTITUTIONAL AND COST/BENEFIT STUDY OF PASSENGER TRANSPORTATION REGULATION IN MINNESOTA

The goal of this study was to analyze the economic regulation of passenger transportation in Minnesota, and in selected other states, to support the development of legislative recommendations by the Minnesota Department of Transportation. The report was prepared under contract to the MnDOT Office of the Motor Carrier Services. The focus of this report is on that segment of the motor carrier industry which provides unsubsidized passenger transportation for hire under state regulation. This consists of intercity and charter bus services using primarily full-size motor coaches, as well as a range of hybrid services which use mini-buses, limousines, vans, and other small vehicles. The report focuses primarily on economic regulation and not on safety regulation
