Abstract

In urban transport, two basic models of organization and management of its functioning are used, i.e. a model of deregulated and regulated transport. The article presents the main assumptions and principles of both models, based on the literature review and the results of research on similarities and discrepancies that take place in practice on the example of two metropolises: West Yorkshire in the United Kingdom and the metropolis of the Gulf of Gdańsk in Poland. When making comparisons, organizational structures appearing on the market, organizers' and operators' tasks, ownership forms of organizers and operators, operators' shares in the transport services market, tariff and ticket solutions as well as the scope of concessions for free and reduced journeys were taken into account. Particular attention was paid to the integration of transport services of individual organizers, focusing on the influence of the level of integration on the quality of transport services. In the further part of the article, issues requiring discussion in the light of the presented research results were pointed out and a summary of the substantive considerations was carried out within its framework. It was also stated that the research hypothesis was proved, according to which the deregulated and regulated transport models show in practice more similarities than discrepancies.
