Political considerations 1a.The Netherlands Public Transport Act 2000 (Wp2000), main objectives: Public transport extension, by meeting customer demands Increase of cost-effectiveness of public transport Free market licence approach 1b.

Public Market Consultation Main goal: To assess the feasibility of the Public Transport Policy objectives in actual practice Result: positive about the multi-modal approach of public transport, as it is regarded as the future for all licences in The Netherlands, But some amendments were desired on: Licence term (due to investments in equipment) Licence dimensions (two licences rather than one in the Limburg area) Government interference (government at distance, as transport provider is expected to develop public transport and responsible for its own revenues) 4. Invitation To Tender Main objective: To encourage tenderers to be creative and innovative in their bid and to prevent them from focusing only on strategic considerations How? Developing the plan is left to the tenderers When awarding the tender making quality a decisive factor A financing system that includes enough incentives to encourage quality improvement throughout the total licence term
