Hele rapporten

Based on the analytical framework developed in the ALTFIN project (Alternativ urban transport funding) and the recent EU project REVENUE (revenue use from transport pricing), we have analysed the use of incentives in six Norwegian urban areas and the importance of the rail service in the Oslo region. The report outlines an optimised incentive mechanism of NOK 150 million annually for the six urban areas, giving a net social benefit of NOK 900 million per year. A transfer of funds between the railway and other modes provide only moderate gains.
