THE PUBLIC TRANSPORT TICKET EXPERIMENT

HET EXPERIMENT OPENBAAR VERVOERKAART

The "openbaar vervoerkaart" (public transport ticket) has been used by a number of persons for a trial period of a year. The ticket allowed unrestricted travel by all means of public transport for a low price. The experiment was accompanied by a number of inquiries. From these it has become clear that the ticket appeals especially to people already having relatively high public transport usage. As an effect of the ticket, the mobility of this group (in kilometres) rises sharply. Making the ticket available to the general public would lead to a large increase in the demand for public transport. Railway passenger kilometres would even double. As a result, the public transport deficit would increase by 700 to 900 million guilders a year (decrease of receipts and increase of running costs. /Author/TRRL/
