PROJECT 1: Public versus private bus transport provision: Understanding the relationship between asset ownership and safety (CLOSED)
While there is debate surrounding the performance of public versus private transport services on various levels, currently, there is little understanding of the influence of bus and other asset ownership (i.e., public versus private sectors) on safety and transport assets. This PhD project will examine and compare overall levels of bus safety using a range of measurable safety outcomes between private and public organisations to make inferences about which ownership model can be expected to deliver the best safety results and develop recommendations for best-practice policy and practice for asset ownership status and safety.
