Tender or not to tender – Governance of urban and regional bus networks
Finding the right mode of governance is essential for good service from a passengers’ perspective.
- Learn about different modes of public transport governance
- Discuss advantages and disadvantages of these modes in different regional and economical contexts
- Compare different systems of governance worldwide
Bus networks in urban, suburban or rural areas can be delivered in various modes of governance: While market-initiated services provide scope for entrepreneurial freedom for the operating companies, the public authorities’ influence is very limited. When networks are tendered public authorities can have a massive influence on the service.
In this online training you will get an overview of public transport regulation in urban and regional networks and learn about the relationship between public transport authorities and bus operating companies. Case Studies from EU and Non-EU regions will be provided. In addition, you will discuss the public transport setup in your home region or working context.
By recreating management situations, you will discuss governance modes for public transport from different stakeholders’ perspectives.
- Institutional frameworks for public transport
- Modes for procurement of public transport (i.e. direct awarding, in-house-production, tender designs)
- Contacts, Risks and Incentives
- Why data governance is important and how to avoid lock-in-effect
- Who owns the customer?
