Charging and taxation incentives in commuter transport

A study on unconventional forms of charging and taxation to support public transport and taxation incentives in commuter transport is currently being sought by the European Commission, DG VII.

The first part of this study will involve a detailed collection and analysis of unconventional forms of charging and taxation, such as infrastructure charges, sales taxes, property taxes and employer taxes, which are used to directly support public transport operations and investments. The information should be collected on a worldwide basis, but with a particular emphasis on the EU Member States.

The second part of this study will involve a review of the Member States' general taxation systems for personal income and fringe benefits and company taxation, followed by an analysis of the incentives and disincentives for using public transport, other sustainable transport modes and the private car. The information should be gathered, analysed and compared for all Member States of the European Union.
