The liberalization of railway passenger transport in Sweden: outstanding regulatory challenges
2012 (English)Report (Other academic)
The purpose of this paper is to describe Swedens recent reforms to open the railway passenger markets to entry, and to addresses four critical issues for the success of the reforms; the allocation of infrastructure capacity, the provision of maintenance and terminal facilities, the access to rolling stock and the provision of information and ticketing to travelers. The analysis shows that the legislation and regulatory tools that are needed to handle these challenges to a large extent remain to be developed.
