dc.description.abstract
The emergence of autonomous buses has potentially large consequences within the system of public transportation. At the moment, buses have low fixed costs and high marginal costs. For each additional bus put in operation to increase the available capacity, an additional driver has to be paid a salary. On the other hand, rail has high fixed costs and lower marginal costs. With autonomous buses, the comparative advantage of rail in terms of economies of scale is coming under pressure. In this paper, the conclusions of a doctoral thesis aiming at the holistic assessment of the competitive situation of trains and buses in regional transport shall be presented. It establishes a framework including a cost-allocation model for operating cost of trains and buses, the maintenance cost of infrastructure as well as the possibility to take into account non-monetary benefits such as shorter travel or access times. After presentation of the main results of the aforementioned assessment framework, the latter shall be applied to two case studies of regional railway lines in Switzerland: Schwanden – Linthal and St. Gallen – Weinfelden.
