User Economies of Scale Bus Subsidy in Adelaide

Listed author(s):
  • Tisato, P.

The current public transport policy focus in Adelaide is on the introduction of competitive tendering to improve productive efficiency, improve financial performance and reduce fiscal stress. Beyong this initiative, the question of public transport subsidy is also an issue of critical policy importance requiring attention (Tisato, 1996). In particular, what is the appropriate level of subsidy in Adelaide which can be justified on economic efficiency grounds? This paper contributes to the resolution of this questionby estimating optimal subsidy in Adelaide, South Australia based on user economies of scale (UES) argument for subsidy. The focus is limited to buses, the dominant mode of public transport in Adelaide (and most other Australian cities).
