THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DEMAND FOR URBAN BUS TRANSPORT IN HOBART AND BUS FARES

The optimum fare structure of a public transport undertaking depends on cost structure of the undertaking and the demand for public transport which the organisation is attempting to satisfy. This study derives from a consideration of these two factors. The first two sections of the study examine the demand characteristics of the market for urban bus travel and the relationship between these characteristics and the price of bus transport. The third section looks at the cost structure of the metropolitan transport trust, and the final two sections examine the various fare structures in common usage and suggest the most appropriate fare structure for Hobart's bus transport system. /Author/TRRL/
