Krzysztof Grzelec , Olgierd Wyszomirski


The structure of demand for urban transport services, determined by the share of passengers entitled to free travel and reduced fares, is an important factor influencing its economic condition. The aim of this article is to present the results of research into the structure of demand for urban transport as well as its economic consequences. The article begins by considering the nature of the determinants and consequences of the public utility of urban transport, before going on to discuss the methodology of research of the demand structure for these transport services. This provides the background for analysis of the results of demand srtucture in chosen cities and allows the economic consequences to be determined. The annual deficit of urban transport was compared with a hypothetical full reimbursement of revenue lost due to free travel and reduced fares.
