|Abstract:||This paper investigates the impact of ownership structure and contractual choices on technical efficiency in the French urban public transport sector. The central proposition, which relies on classical contract theory arguments, is indeed that ownership regime and contractual practices are key determinants of performances. To test this proposition, we use an original panel data set covering 135 different French urban transport networks over the period 1995-2002 and we apply a stochastic frontier methodology. The econometric results corroborate our proposition: the technical efficiency of urban public transport operators depends on the ownership regime as well as on the type of contract that governs their transactions|
