AbstractThe paper identifies, formulates and resolves several problems arising from dealing with the economic and social pillars of sustainable public transport. In the first part of the paper three pillars of sustainable transport are presented. The second part studies harmonization problems of economic, spatial and time accessibility of public transport and illustrates them by the Czech situation. The third part studies the cost-revenue-subsidy relation, emphasizes the right choice of fares and suggests a harmonization between the prices of the ticket for individual trip and the monthly one. The fourth part shows several important measures for getting the economic and social acceptability of public transport service, namely optimal choice of rolling stock structure, routes and frequencies, vehicle and crew scheduling.
