Fare Collection Framework

The strategic and institutional framework established for the urban passenger transport system in any given city will then govern the setting of objectives for its fare collection system. Clearly the policies set for sector funding and cost recovery will affect the level of fares that need to be charged, and the form of economic regulation and the institutional framework will influence the allocation of responsibilities for the operation and administration of the fare collection system. The respective roles of the public and private sectors in the sector will also have some bearing on these decisions.
