Public-Private Partnerships in Transport: Unbundling Prices from User Charges
This paper presents a model intended to address certain downsides of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs). It focuses on cases where demand risk should not be transferred to the private party. It argues that user charging should remain the responsibility of the public authorities and proposes to organise the funding of PPPs via an infrastructure fund. The paper is part of a series of 19 papers and a synthesis report produced by the International Transport Forum’s Working Group on Private Investment in Transport Infrastructure.
