This chapter presents an overview of the dual effects of the opening of the new HSR (300 Km/h) line in Italy, with a single operator between 2010 and 2012 and with the entry of a new operator since 2012. Before-and-after effects on supply, demand and prices are presented, allowing the analysis of the evolution of new HSR services on the multimodal intercity travel market as well as a first evaluation of the competition within a typically monopolistic market. Analyses are based on source data (laws and regulations, business plans, timetables, prices) as well as ad hoc extensive surveys, such as on-board counts on the high-speed and intercity trains, retrospective surveys, and revealed preference/stated preference (RP/SP) interviews., Results from an integrated modeling system developed to assess the effects of timetables/services/prices in terms of HSR and competing modes (air/ auto/railways) were used in the analyses.

Abstract

This chapter presents an overview of the dual effects of the opening of the new HSR (300 Km/h) line in Italy, with a single operator between 2010 and 2012 and with the entry of a new operator since 2012. Before-and-after effects on supply, demand and prices are presented, allowing the analysis of the evolution of new HSR services on the multimodal intercity travel market as well as a first evaluation of the competition within a typically monopolistic market. Analyses are based on source data (laws and regulations, business plans, timetables, prices) as well as ad hoc extensive surveys, such as on-board counts on the high-speed and intercity trains, retrospective surveys, and revealed preference/stated preference (RP/SP) interviews., Results from an integrated modeling system developed to assess the effects of timetables/services/prices in terms of HSR and competing modes (air/ auto/railways) were used in the analyses.
