The report describes some principles for efficient pricing of public transport. These are considered in light of the Norwegian Government’s goal to halt urban car traffic. Efficient pricing combines variations in long term marginal costs with variations in long term price elasticity of demand. A strategy towards more efficient pricing includes relatively higher fares in peak periods, relatively lower off-peak fares and premiums on high-quality services.
