  1. 1. Competition in Public Transport Essays on competitive tendering and open-access competition in Sweden

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Andreas Vigren; KTH.; Statens väg- och transportforskningsinstitut.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science; Competition; Public Transport; Tendering; Procurement; Cost efficient; Bus; Railway; Open access competition; 02 Road: Economics; 02 Road: Economics; 111 Road: Public transport; 111 Road: Public transport; J13 Railway: Economics; J13 Railway: Economics; Public transport; Contract; Tender; Economic efficiency; Location; Transport operator; Depot transp ; Impact study; Line transp ;

    Abstract : The results of this work show that the cost efficiency of tendered bus services is similar across all Swedish counties, except for the more high-density counties where efficiency is lower. Considerably lower efficiency is also found for contracts with services run in-house by the Public Transport Authority (PTA), compared to when the same service is run by a private actor. READ MORE

  2. 2. Efficiency and acceptability of pricing policies and transport investments in distorted economies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Jonas Westin; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; road pricing; transport investment; cost-benefit analysis; tax distortions; transport policies; welfare effects; political economy; acceptability; SRA - Transport; SRA - Transport;

    Abstract : This thesis contains five papers studying the economic efficiency and political acceptability of road pricing policies and transport investments in distorted economies. Interactions between the transport market and other distorted markets, such as the labor market, can have a large impact on the welfare effect of a road pricing policy or a transport investment.

  3. 3. Turbulent and neoclassical transport in tokamak plasmas

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Istvan Pusztai; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; thermonuclear fusion; tokamaks; microinstabilities; transport analysis; isotope effect; impurity transport; neoclassical transport; transport barriers; turbulent transport;

    Abstract : One of the greatest challenges of thermonuclear fusion is to understand, predict and to some extent control particle and energy transport in fusion plasmas. In the present thesis we consider theoretical and experimental aspects of collisional and turbulent transport in tokamak plasmas. READ MORE

  4. 4. Costs in Swedish Public Transport An analysis of cost drivers and cost efficiency in public transport contracts

    Abstract : Interactions between the transport market and other distorted markets, such as the labor market, can have a large impact on the overall welfare effect of a road pricing policy or a congestion charge. Many road pricing studies therefore try to incorporate effects from other distorted markets in the analysis. READ MORE
