The Transport Economists’ Group celebrated 40 years in 2013
The Transport Economists’ Group, formed in 1973, provides a forum for people involved in transport economics to meet regularly and discuss matters of mutual interest. Membership is open to economists working in transport and others whose work is connected with transport economics. The aim of the Group is to improve the quality of transport management, planning and decision making by promoting lectures, discussions and publications related to the economics of transport and of the environment within which the industry functions.
Next meeting, Wednesday 22 November 2017 at 17:30 for 18:00
Dick Dunmore of Steer Davies Gleave will speak on “The economics and prospects of Europe’s night trains”.
Night train services have been closing across Europe, most conspicuously with the complete closure of DB’s City Night Line in December 2016, after which some of its services were taken over by ÖBB’s Nightjet.
Dick will present work, now published, for the European Parliament’s TRAN Committee, on the economics of the services, factors contributing to their decline, their future prospects, and recommendations for monitoring and sustaining night train services.
