The liberalization of railway passenger transport in Sweden – Outstanding regulatory challenges
() and Roger Pyddoke
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to describe Sweden’s recent
reforms to open the railway passenger markets to entry, and to addresses
four critical issues for the success of the reforms; the allocation of
infrastructure capacity, the provision of maintenance and terminal
facilities, the access to rolling stock and the provision of information
and ticketing to travelers. The analysis shows that the legislation and
regulatory tools that are needed to handle these challenges to a large
extent remain to be developed.
