organisation - regulation, mode - mass transit
Transit, Regulatory reform, Public transit, Organizations, Organisations, Mass transit, Local transit, Entrepreneurs, Deregulation
Two classification frameworks were developed in order to clarify the discussion on regulatory reform in public transport and to compare the organisational forms which have appeared during the last 15 years. The levels of planning and control concept is applied to the supply of public transport services. Various forms of organisations are classified so as to allow a positioning of the various real world organisational forms in relation to "pure" organisational forms. A number of ideal-typical organisational forms are provided. Also illustrated are the various roles competition plays within those organisational forms.
