Promoting Regional Transport

Report of the Eighty-Second Round Table on Transport Economics Held in Paris on 1-2 June 1990

European Conference of Ministers of Transport

What are the main difficulties arising in connection with regional passenger transport? The drifting away of passengers, rising deficits and the deterioration of services offered are clearly matters of concern to the political bodies who would like to see such transport fulfilling its role as a public service.

Round Table 82 compares the experiences of a number of countries and seeks to determine what the prospects are for the development of regional transport.
