Abstract

The major premise of this paper is that reform of regulation of the intercity bus industry in Canada is required. The paper critically reviews the rationale for economic regulation of the industry and finds it no longer valid. Existing systems of regulation are found to result in passive fare review. Barriers to entry are found to be absolute. The present system of regulation is shown to result in inflated costs per passenger mile and supra-competitive profits. A model for regulatory reform is proposed. /// A la base de cet article, il faut souligner avant tout la nécessité de refondre la réglementation concernant l'industrie des autobus inter-villes au Canada. Nous y faisons la critique des raisons d'une réglementation économique de cette industrie et nous concluons qu'une telle réglementation n'est pas valide. Les systèmes de réglementation existants ont pour résultat une révision passive des tarifs. Ces systèmes entraînent des coûts exagérés par passager/mille et des profits supra-normaux. Nous proposons donc un modèle pour une réforme de la réglementation.
