Choice of Carriers on the Market of Public City Passenger Transport Services
The passenger transport system in cities is the backbone of sustainable urban mobility. The problem faced by the city authorities is the question of choosing the carrier with the best bid in the public call. Services in charge of public transport are often able to choose carriers for one or more lines, and often for the entire area. The basic dilemmas are related to the type of procedure that should be carried out, whether the transport services market is open to competition, what methodology to apply if the transport services market is not declared open to competition, whether the selection procedure should end with the signing of the contract between the city government and the operator, and other questions for which answers are sought.This paper presents an analysis of practices and proposed guidelines for the development and application of the bid operator ranking model in the public selection process.
