FARE ELASTICITIES ON INTER URBAN AND RURAL BUS SERVICES

The principal aim of this study was to establish a series of values for fare elasticity for different types of bus service outside major urban areas. A selection of routes were sampled and surveys are described in the Sheffield-Doncaster area and the Morpeth area. The routes were chosen to include inter-urban, rural and small town services, to determine the short and medium term effects of a fare increase. The study was to examine not only the number of journeys, but also the changes in journey length and purpose. /TRRL/
