Price effects of increased competition on passenger railway services

Project Number: 430

Project Leader: Andreas Vigren

Start Date: 2015-09-01

End Date: 2016-08-31

Research Question In March 2015, MTR started operating the route Stockholm-Göteborg and competes directly with the incumbent, and previous (in practice) rail-monopolist, SJ. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether entry on the route Stockholm-Göteborg has lowered ticket prices faced by ordinary travellers, as would be expected from increased competition.
