This book evaluates the successes, failures, and factors that influence the competition for public bus transport services. 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. The empirical analysis is based on primary data usually not publicly available, and supplemented by numerous expert interviews. The book aims to provide a basic understanding of the players and their options, offer insights into the German model, and make policy recommendations for those whose goal is to increase competition.

This international conference on Urban Transport and the Environment has successfully been reconvened annually for the last sixteen years. It has always attracted a wide international spread of delegates and is well established as the premier annual event of its type. It first started in Southampton, UK in 1995; continuing in Barcelona, Spain (1996); Acquasparta, Italy (1997); Lisbon, Portugal (1998); Rhodes, Greece (1999); Cambridge, UK (2000); Lemnos, Greece (2001); Seville, Spain (2002); Crete, Greece (2003); Dresden, Germany (2004); Algarve, Portugal (2005); WIT campus in the New Forest, UK (2006); Coimbra, Portugal (2007); Malta (2008); and Bologna, Italy (2009).The continuing requirement for better urban transport systems in general and the need for a healthier environment has led to an increased level of research around the world. This is reflected in the proceedings of this well-established meeting which demonstrates the steady growth and research into urban transport systems. The variety of topics covered by this conference is of primary importance for analysing the complex interaction of the urban transport environment and for establishing action strategies for transport and traffic problems.Transportation in cities with its related environmental and social concerns is a topic of the utmost importance for urban authorities and central governments around the world. Urban Transport systems require considerable studies to safeguard their operational use, maintenance and safety. They produce significant environmental impacts and can enhance or degrade the quality of life in urban centres. The emphasis is to seek transportation systems that minimize any ecological and environmental impact, are sustainable and help to improve the socio-economic fabric of the city. Another area of concern addressed by the conference is that of public safety and security, seeking ways to protect passengers while retaining the efficiency of the sys
