From Linear to Zonal Management Contracts: A Proposal for the Public Inter-Urban Transportation of Travelers by Road in Aragón

Ricardo Badía-Lázaro, Eugenio Antonio Climent-López


The objective of the article is to present a proposal for the restructuring of the interurban transportation system of travellers by road in Aragón, based on a previous diagnosis. Several sources of information and spatial analysis methods are used. The difficulty of providing a quality transport service in regions of low population density and settlements dispersion is noted and the inefficiencies of the current system of linear concessions are identified. A new system of zonal concessions is proposed, which allows for greater coordination and integrates general and school transportation. The proposal is valued economically and compared with the plans of the regional administration.
