    Sammanfattning : The results of this work show that the cost efficiency of tendered bus services is similar across all Swedish counties, except for the more high-density counties where efficiency is lower. Considerably lower efficiency is also found for contracts with services run in-house by the Public Transport Authority (PTA), compared to when the same service is run by a private actor. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Transport Efficiency: Analysing the Transport Service Triad

    Författare :Victor Eriksson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; transport service; transport efficiency; activities; freight transport; transport service triad; triad; business relationships; actors; industrial network approach; resources;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with transport services and transport efficiency. There are growing environmental concerns for many industries and the freight transport industry in particular faces challenges in reducing its CO2 emissions. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Using contracts to manage services : A study of contracts in public transport

    Författare :Carolina Camén; Bo Edvardsson; Virpi Havila; Karlstads universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Contracts; services; service quality; business-to-business relationship; public transport; Business Administration; Företagsekonomi;

    Sammanfattning : Contracts play a key role in many business to business relationships. Service organisations are no exception. Despite a growing interest of services and how services are managed, research on how to use contracts to manage services has been surprisingly sparse in service research. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Intermodal Road-Rail Transportation for Express Transport Services

    Författare :Sofia Ohnell; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; transport services; Intermodal transportation; transport systems; modelling; express transportation;

    Sammanfattning : Express transport services are produced in highly modularised transport systems, a fact that implies that one subsystem can be exchanged for another without causing a need for major changes in other parts of the system. Express goods are not common on a large scale in freight railway transport systems, as those are often not considered reliable enough for time-critical goods. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Satisfaction with Public Transport Trips

    Författare :Roberto Fernandez Abenoza; Yusak Octavius Susilo; Oded Cats; Sigal Kaplan; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; customer satisfaction; public transport; three-factor theory; accessibility; built-environment; weather; door-to-door trips; firs and last-mile; market segmentation; geographical variations; service quality; safety perceptions; temporal variations; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Sammanfattning : Continuous urban growth, environmental issues, competition for limited space, longer commuting distances as well as the need to promote equity and equality in society are the primary reasons that make the improvement of public transport (PT) services a key policy area in many countries across the globe. Travel satisfaction measures the perceived quality of the PT service and it is an important aspect that operators and PT authorities need to consider when improving the service offered. LÄS MER
