Are order driven markets publicly available?

In an order driven market, who has access to the bid-ask prices? Does the public have access to it?

You are asking a very good question and one which is quite applicable to a trader.  Yahoo Finance used to offer public quotes of both sides of the bid ask book for many publicly traded companies.  If you are an owner of a brokerage account, many on line brokers offer access to what is called level one, two, and three quotes.  Often there is a monthly fee for that information.  Bloomberg also compiles that information and is considered the source for bond quotes as well.  I hope this helps answer your question regarding order driven markets.
