Season Tickets and the Demand for Public Transport
Season tickets generate two-part tariffs or public transport clubs with zero margin pecuniary cost of transport use for members. A simple model of the welfare gains from travel passes is tested using twenty-six years of data from four Swiss cities. Pooled and seemingly unrelated regression estimates reveal large and robust season ticket effects on transport demand. Quality proxies also have significant effects although data on complementary traffic restraint measures are unavailable. Revenue growth trends were not permanently reduced by the introduction of cheap, transferable season tickets which are, thus, shown to be important components of urban transport policy.
