Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to investigate the problem of modal split for passengers and vehicles in a specific context, that of the Greek coastal shipping system. The transport modes considered are conventional passenger/car ferries (P/C vessels), fast (30-50 knot) vessels, and air transport. For a variety of reasons, monumental changes are about to take place within this system over the next decade. These center primarily on the deregulation of the market that is a result of the European Union integration, and on the introduction of vessels capable of carrying passengers and cars at high speeds. By EU directive, the Greek coastal market shall be fully deregulated by the year 2004. This means that owners would be able to set up routes with minimal governmental interference. The question is of course how passenger demand will evolve within such a new environment, and how the various competing modes of transport will fare. This paper is an attempt to systematically analyze scenarios that might be the possible outcomes of these changes.
