Who Pays the Ferryman?eBook - 2013
An informative and critical analysis of Scotland's ferry services, this book describes the glory days of how, from modest beginnings, Scotland once led the world in maritime development. It contrasts the achievements of the past with the failures, waste, and inadequacy of much of today's state-owned ferry provision. In addition to showing how a more equitable fares regime can be devised, Roy Pedersen also addresses sensitive issues such as CO2 and other emissions, state versus private ownership, the place of trade unions, and, most importantly of all, how the lot of island and peninsular communities can be bettered through provision of efficient, cost-effective ferry services. Drawing on best practices at home and overseas, it sets out how Scottish ferry services can be revolutionized to be, once again, among the best in the world.
