Can passenger railways curb road traffic externalities? – Empirical evidence


Lalive, Rafael; Lüchinger, Simon; Schmutzler, Armin (2013). Can passenger railways curb road traffic externalities? – Empirical evidence. London: VoxEU.org.

Abstract

Against a backdrop of road accidents, pollution and congestion, many governments subsidise railways with the aim of reducing such externalities. But do improvements in public transport work? This column argues that recent empirical evidence confirms our expectations and, moreover, that public-transport improvements offer good value for money.
