London Bus Garages

London Bus Garages

This paper estimates a spatial bus garage entry model to test whether anti-competitive market sharing agreements exist between firms in the London bus route procurement market. Our approach is based on a simple but powerful idea: a necessary condition for collusion is the triggering of a punishment when a firm deviates to the competitive equilibrium.
