Private ownership of highwaysEdit

In some countries, private companies may build and operate highways (presumably generating profit from toll revenue). Sometimes, there will be joint ventures between private companies and the government for this purpose.

PossibleEdit

  • Listonianfreestateflag Listonian Free State — theoretically possible, but in practice very few such projects have advanced to construction.
  • XochimechatlFlag Xochimechatl — all jurisdictions allow privately-owned highways either explicitly or by default, although only a few such projects have gone ahead (all of which have been public-private parnerships).

Not possibleEdit

  • Flag-aethelnia Aethelnia — only the federal government may build and own motorways.
  • Flag-lendosa Lendosa — only the government may build and own highways.
  • Flag-mariim Mari'im — only the government may build and own highways.
  • Flag-portocapital Porto Capital — Private ownership of transportways is not possible.
  • Scwflag Shaelia — private ownership of highways, roadways, and/or bridges is not possible.
  • Flag-trinia Trinia — only the government may build and own highways, although this is more an accidental consequence of the law's phrasing than a deliberate policy choice.

Private ownership of rail transportEdit

Can rail transport (the tracks, the trains, or both) be privately owned?

PossibleEdit

  • Flag-aethelnia Aethelnia — all track and infrastructure in the country is government-owned, most railway services are also governemnt-owned (and free-of-charge), but increasingly passenger operations are franchised to individual private-sector operators and the freight services sold outright.
  • Flag-lendosa Lendosa — all railways in the country are owned either by private companies or by companies that could be privatised if desired.
  • Listonianfreestateflag Listonian Free State — all railways are privately owned.
  • Scwflag Shaelia — private companies may operate railways and lay rail, so long as they have the proper permits and other documentation.
  • Flag-trinia Trinia — private companies are allowed to run trains in competition with the state rail operator, although the track itself is by law owned by the government (through a separate agency than the one which operates trains).
  • XochimechatlFlag Xochimechatl — legal by default, as there are no laws one way or another.

Not possibleEdit

  • Flag-mariim Mari'im — the law is written in the assumption that rail infrastructure will be government-owned.
  • Flag-portocapital Porto Capital — Transport insfraestructure is government-owned.

Private ownership of airlinesEdit

Is is possible for an airline to be privately owned?

PossibleEdit

  • Flag-trinia Trinia — there are no significant restrictions, and private airlines exist.
  • XochimechatlFlag Xochimechatl — there are no significant restrictions, and at present, all airlines based in the country are privately owned.

Not possibleEdit

  • Flag-mariim Mari'im — in theory, it would be possible to establish a private airline, but in practice, the government will always decline to grant a license on the grounds that the applicant would be "surplus to requirements".

  • Listonianfreestateflag Listonian Free State — some commericial airports are privately owned.

Not possibleEdit
