Springer published Arne Beck’s doctoral thesis on “Competition for Public Transport Services”

The doctoral thesis analyses the parameters, results and influencing factors of competition in Germany.

Using Germany as a case study, the author explains the dichotomous system of a market with licenses for commercial services, where operators are granted exclusivity, and licenses for non-commercial services, where supplementary direct subsidies are tendered out by public transport authorities.
