The additional information needed is the VTTS for each item of travel demand necessary for the calibration of ghs. In what precedes, we have specified all preferences as one-level CES: obviously, everything can be extended to nested CES or other functional forms. Commuting An interesting application of CGE models in transport is to look at the interaction between commuting costs and the labour market. In many countries commuting costs are deducted from the tax base. This reduces distortions in job choice, but may distort residential location choices (Wrede, 2003).

These transport related sectors can be differentiated by transport object (passengers versus freight, bulk versus container), by distance class (short versus long), by mode and other characteristics. 1. A household could, for example, choose between consumption of travel services and consumption of other goods, and then, conditional on having chosen travel, how much of his private car and of public transportation to use. Thus, apparently, nothing has to be added to what has been explained so far.

Starting with a simple model of incentives the authors present a series of results which have as common elements the degree of integration of functions, the role of the regulator (providing a link with Marco Ponti’s chapter) and the length of contracts. To complement this theoretical analysis Antonio Estache, Ellis Juan and Lourdes Trujillo (Public–private partnerships in transport) provide a general survey of experiences with PPPs in transport. They provide a historical account of the development of PPPs and their increasingly important role in recent decades.
