    El Observatorio de Costes y Financiación del Transporte Urbano Colectivo y sus informes anuales sobre el sector constituyen una excelente plataforma para mejorar el conocimiento de su estructura de costes, posibilitar prácticas de benchmarking a las operadoras y orientar políticas para una financiación eficiente del servicio. Constituye objetivo principal del presente trabajo divulgar el contenido y la estructura del Informe delObservatorio de Costes y Financiación del Transporte Urbano Colectivo 2008-2009, el universo poblacional objeto de estudio y la metodología aplicada tanto para la selección de la muestra analizada como para la definición de los indicadores analizados. Por último, se esbozan algunas propuestas para identificación de itinerarios de investigación de los aspectos críticos para una gestión eficiente y sostenible del servicio y se presentan las principales conclusiones del trabajo. / The Observatorio de Costes y Financiación del Transporte Urbano Colectivo (Cost and Funding of UrbanTransport Watchdog) and its annual reports on this industry provide an excellent platform to improve awareness of its cost structure, to enable benchmarking strategies/practices for companies, and to fundpolicies for an efficient public service. Alongside this, setting-up a database which includes a battery/series of comprehensive and core parameters for studying the conditions of public service provision in Spain, is a first-order information base that must be used to generate industry knowledge and develop multiple lines of research to be explored in the future. In this paper we aim to present a potential research roadmap in this area.
