IRU Position on the new revised European Commission Proposal concerning public service requirements, (2005)
The IRU is in favour of open, fair and transparent mechanisms to introduce competition in the public transport market for bus and coach services, as foreseen in the EC proposal. Regulated competition, whereby a competent authority grants an exclusive right for a specific period following an open and transparent invitation to tender, functions well and produces positive results. However, distortion of competition arising from the granting of State aid to compensate for public service obligations should be ended.
