GUIDELINES TO ZONE FARE SYSTEMS

This is the Transport (Planning and Research) Act 1974 final repor NMT 74/20. It examines the present methods of fare system (in Sydney) of public transport (both public and private enterprise) in which more than one mode of transport or breaks within a single mode of transport is involved. It then identifies problems if a single fare was to be charged. Modelling techniques are carried out using a single case not providing attraction from other modes. The model is tested on Sydney data to determine benefits disadvantages, social costs and feasibility of the single fare system. Further modelling was carried out for more complicated cases and again tested. Finally, guidelines were set out for zone fare system by way of models and methods to evaluate possible problems. /TRRL/
