Description: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.
