T&E response to Public Consultation on Passengers Rights in Multimodal Transport

T&E has responded to the European Commission's Public Consultation on Passengers Rights in Multimodal Transport. Through-ticketing has been essential for the growth of aviation and connectivity in Europe. By contrast, national rail companies have largely avoided these types of agreements because of competitive reasons and accordingly the opportunity for cross border rail travel has suffered enormously. Rail companies should start sharing data to make through-ticketing possible for train travel.

T&E response to consultation on Combined Transport Directive

In 2017 the European Commission will publish its draft review of the Combined Transport Directive. This legislation is linked to the Commission’s own target to get more freight on both rail and inland waterways by 2030. In our response to the consultation on amending the directive, T&E argues that freight multimodality needs to become more attractive for shippers if we are to increase the use of cleaner modes for the majority of a freight shipment. This review provides an opportunity to take steps towards achieving that. Download T&E's response to the consultation below.
