CER Position - Action plan to boost long-distance and cross-border passenger rail
European railways welcome the timely adoption of the EU Action plan to boost long-distance and cross-border passenger rail services, which shows the commitment of the European Commission to reach ambitious goals coming from the EU Green Deal and the Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy. CER Members are determined to be an active partner in the push to realise the modal shift and help the EU achieve the goals to mitigate the consequence of climate change. With this position paper CER would like to convey comments on the overall Action Plan and outline broad positions on the individual actions listed by the Commission, providing our views and suitable steps forward for a seamless and fully functional Single European Railway System.
