CER comments to the EU Mobility Strategy

European railways welcomed the timely adoption of the EU Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy, which aims to help the transport sector to swiftly respond to the ongoing and accelerating climate crisis and seize the opportunities of modern and efficient technologies.

The Strategy grants a prominent role to rail in the transition towards zero-emission mobility and the delivery of the EU Green Deal objectives. Focussing on improving services, European railways will support the European Commission and the Member States in implementing the Strategy.

Since the COVID-19 recovery and climate crises must be addressed both at once, CER compiled this reaction paper to use the Strategy to give inputs to achieve a sustainable, resilient recovery by building back better mobility.
