Currently, an increasing consensus is endorsing the introduction of competition in public transport (PT), through public service contracts. At the same time, whilst in some countries subsidies (or financial compensation) are a well-established practice, in others they are considered unmotivated. In this paper a framework is proposed to estimates and evaluate transit costs, benefits, and impacts to support transport planning and policy making as well as operator management. The proposed methodology aims at computing the (total operating) cost and the revenue resulting from the option features and fares, and allows public transport service plan appraisal. In particular, the subsidies, or financial compensation, are given a clear socio-economic meaning.
