Abstract

This paper focuses on some problematic aspects of public transport fares, with particular reference to Italy. The transport economics approach is supported by a modelling application on theoretical basis concerning, at urban level, the potential reaction of demand to the supply of an improved functional integration between underground lines and surface road routes. In particular, through a logistic regression model, the study investigates the effects produced by the adoption of fares integration based on the reduction of waiting time for modal interchange. The analysis of relevant literature can be considered adequate for the purposes of this study. Results are interesting from an economic perspective and highlight some specific reactions on the part of the users which also find confirmation in other research works carried out in the field of public transport. The general aims have been accomplished, while the conclusions reflect on some structural trends in the field towards fares and functional integration.
