Abstract

The accessibility to city centres and large attraction parks increasingly becomes an issue of concern for location owners. They seek possibilities to offer transport services as an alternative to car use. In doing so, co-operation with public transport companies is important. These companies do not yet have the culture and opportunities to develop tailor-made services. Institutional changes yielding more market incentives and good information sharing should help to bridge the gaps between these parties. In particular a shared view on the service level to be offere4 based on investigation of visitors’ preferences, should be the starting point for inter-organisational co-operation.
