Transport White Paper: supporting rail means supporting our economy and citizens

Passenger associations and railways share a common vision: a European rail sector that is the backbone of a seamless, multimodal and accessible transport system, an enabler for the competitiveness, inclusiveness and sustainability of the European economy.

Effective steps need to be taken to turn the White Paper’s objectives into reality, and the railways are committed to achieving a situation where the rail sector advances technological innovation and new service models in areas such as ticketing, travel information and real-time information for customers.

By continually embracing technological and societal changes, the sector works towards increased passenger care and service quality in order to better meet the needs and expectations of its customers.
