Setting the scene: background and overview of regulatory reform in the transport sector
Matthias Finger and
Chapter 1 in Regulating Transport in Europe, 2013, pp 1-35 from Edward Elgar Publishing
This book concerns the regulation of transport within a European context, covering air, inland waterways, rail, road passenger and freight, urban public transport, and short sea shipping. All these sectors have experienced substantial changes over the last two decades, in terms of ownership, competition and liberalisation, and the book explores the main transformations and their impacts. The authors address these issues, with a specific focus on the effects of the organisation and regulation of transport systems on their performance. They also provide timely policy recommendations, including possible European future policy initiatives.
