EU action plan for pan-European rail travel: An on-time departure to make rail an attractive alternative to air travel?
The European Commission wants to fight the disconnections in the European rail network and thus strengthen climate-friendly railways compared to carbon-intensive air and road transport. To this end, it will present an Action Plan to boost long-distance cross-border passenger rail services and a further development of the TEN-T rail investment plan on Tuesday 14 of December 2021. Before the delivery of these documents, the Europe on Rail coalition stresses the urgent need for ambitious policies improving the European rail network.
