The Demand for Public Transport: Some Estimates from Zurich
AbstractThere is a great potential for public transport to play the key role in solving problems of urban congestion. The Swiss city of Zurich provides an example of a medium-sized city where a high quality service, declining real price levels and the promotion of season tickets has significantly raised the number of passenger trips by public transport. This paper presents some estimates of the effect of these factors on the demand for public transport use in Zurich.
