This workshop continued the long tradition of reviewing developments in the contracting-out of public transport services in this Conference series. Drawing on 12 research papers and presentations and the ensuing lively discussion, three main contributions were made. Firstly, key issues in the contracting cycle were identified and critical success factors identified for different public markets, distinguished by different levels of maturity and multi-modality. Secondly, a matrix that maps contract incentives/enablers against stakeholders was developed. Thirdly, the implications of new technology were considered and the role of regulatory sandboxes highlighted.
