How many want to drive the bus? Analyzing the number of bids for public transport bus contracts
Transport Policy, 2018, vol. 72, issue C, 138-147
This paper examines how different factors related to contract characteristics and the operational and tender environments affect the number of unique bidders placing bids in tenders for bus contracts. A generalized Poisson model is used with a comprehensive data set containing most of the recently tendered bus contracts in Sweden, spanning the period 2007–2015.
