Appendix 1

Administrative basis for the pool for the improvement of public transport in external areas (2013-2017)

1. Baseline Base

As part of the Agreement for better and cheaper collective traffic between the government, the Entity List and the Danish People's People's Party, a total of EUR 57 million has been set aside. DKK in each of the years 2013-2017 to collective traffic in the outer areas.

The Agreement states :

Pool text :

Improvement of public transport in external areas (2013-2017)

Agreement text :

There is a need to strengthen public transport in the peripheral areas, where the passenger base is not sufficient to maintain the same route and service as in the rest of the country. It is important that there is an offer of public services also in areas where there are often no alternatives to the local bus, for example when students at youth education are to be at school.

The parties therefore agree to set aside a total of EUR 57 million in total. DKK in each of the years 2013-2017 to collective traffic in the outer areas. The aid shall be granted in order to support the development of new routes and so on from the pool the funds for operating aid, including start-up costs, can be sought from the puls; However, the State aid for operation may be granted at the highest level for a period of up to two years.

Investment in infrastructure can also be sought, which helps to make public transport in the peripheral regions better.

The applicant shall contribute the same amount, to which it is sought. There is application date 1. February of each year, 2013-2017. Appliors are municipalities, regions and road companies.

The assessment of applications is a priority after the location of the municipalities, so that priority is given to projects in sparsely populated areas. In addition, the emphasis is given to the emphasis on the search for funds for new activities and innovative measures, as well as the extent of co-financing from the applicant or the applicant parties.

2. Exmuting

The pool provides support for projects with the following purposes :

Development of new routes, including operating aid for up to 2 years, and upstart costs.

Investment in infrastructure, which contributes to the improvement of public transport in the outlying areas.

Applications may be either for tests which may cover new and innovative ideas, or to projects / schemes that offer a general improvement to the tender for passengers and through there attracts more passengers in the peripheral areas.

Projects with local anchoring in, for example, the village laugallows, local associations and similar cases can be taken into account by submitting an application in cooperation with the municipality. In this way, the municipalities can apply for funds to projects where local players are responsible for activities which generally increase mobility in sparsely populated areas. 1)

It would be a promotion, but not a prerequisite for an application that it can contribute either to improvements that can be applied across the whole of collective bushels or between bushels and rail traffic. Projects, which are estimated to be able to promote public transport in peripheral regions, will be a high priority.

It will be possible to draw up applications so that the project is part of a global project or strategy, which simultaneously seeks funds from other state pools. Offer may include all collective traffic on the territory of a traffic area, including trains.

Priority shall be given between applications on the basis of the following criteria :

The project must be translated into sparsely populated areas (see Annex)

That the project promotes public transport in the outer areas

That the project is testing new ideas and innovative actions in the peripheral regions

The project strengthens green solutions

That as many as possible will benefit from the project

That the project has a local anchorage

The commitment and contribution of the relevant authorities to the process as an important element of the application.

There will be demands for the reporting of all projects to which aid is granted.

The pot does not have a specific purpose to promote marketing. Applications that are only aimed at subsidies for campaigns, and so on alone. to strengthen the image of the traffic company, the overall image of the bus traffic overall. Equine. , therefore, is not supported by the pool. However, the placing on the market may be granted if it is carried out as part of the implementation of a project which meets the purpose of the pool, whether or not the placing on the market or placing on the market is part of an application which contains other elements. This means that the placing on the market will help to promote these projects.

As a starting point, the pot is not the means for cycling and parking spaces. However, subsidies may be granted for small activity in these areas that are integrated into a project that is living up to the purpose of the pool.

3. Financial Frames

The applicant shall contribute the same amount, to which it is sought. The co-financing includes the overall project, including project planning and investigation. Appliors shall reserve amounts for own funds on the relevant budgets. Applicants cannot have their own funds covered by using the funds allocated by the Ministry of Transportation, for example, by using the funds allocated. It is noted that the pool has over-access. Ex-use funds from 2013 will thus be able to be applied in 2014 etc. Therefore, if projects are not sufficiently planned for the first year, the funds will be transferred to next year.
