Cost evaluation and financing schemes for urban transport systems


The Project FISCUS will analyse existing cost allocation methodologies and financing schemes, and conceive new ones in response to identified gaps and weaknesses. It addresses in detail:
The evaluation of real transport costs (internal and external) for the various urban transport modes (bus, tram, rail, private transport, water transport, underground, walking and cycling) with the objective of enabling cost comparisons between public transport and private car over the same journey.
The financing of urban mobility here understood as corresponding to who pays, directly or indirectly the provision of transport infrastructure and services, but also to who bears its (positive or negative) consequences without being directly involved.

The approach of Project FISCUS consist of the following steps:

1. Define a methodological framework for assessing urban transport financing schemes;
2. Define a methodological framework for evaluation real urban transport costs;
3. Evaluate real urban transport costs;
4. Design new financing schemes for urban transport.

The expected output is a European handbook for evaluating real urban transport costs and designing financing schemes for urban transport systems.
