project objectives
Project objectives
  • Achieving a better knowledge of current practices of revenue use
  • Providing policy makers with guidelines for better alternative revenue uses on the basis of economic theory
  • Testing the guidelines on a set of urban and interurban case studies
wp1 setting the stage
WP1 Setting the stage
  • Deliverable D1 : “The State of the Art and Conceptual Background” (Laird et al, 2004)
    • review of the EC policy framework and of relevant research already undertaken and funded by the EC;
    • Identification of the “REVENUE issues”
questions for revenue
Questions for REVENUE
  • How to determine optimal levels of surplus or deficit?
  • Who should set the charges?
  • Who should decide how to spend the revenue?
  • How do financial constraints affect pricing and investment rules?
  • How can efficient pricing and investment by lower tiers of government be ensured?
  • How can consistency of government policy over time be achieved?
  • How can the private sector best be involved?
wp2 theoretical framework
WP2 Theoretical framework
  • Deliverable D2 : “Theoretical framework” (Proost, de Palma et al, 2004)
    • A theoretical framework which deals with economic, financial, institutional aspects related to the issue of a proper/better/optimal use of revenues from transport pricing;
    • A software tool to evaluate investment and pricing policies (the MOLINO model)
wp3 case studies specification
WP3 Case studies specification
  • Deliverable D3 : “Case studies specification” (Suter et al, 2004)
    • A methodology to translate the theoretical background prescriptions into guidelines to evaluate regulation schemes for pricing, revenue use and investments in the real world case studies;
    • A “standard” format for case study implementation and presentation
case studies implementation

  • WP4: 7 Interurban case studies
