Welcome words
 
 

Welcome to the website of the Committee on Transport and Tourism (TRAN).

Here you can find information about the members and work of the committee which I have been chairing since 7 July 2014.
 
When legislation on transport, tourism or postal services is being formulated under the Ordinary Legislative Procedure, the TRAN committee acts as an equal partner with the Council.
 
The aim of our work is to ensure mobility while at the same time protecting the climate. After all, transport is not only responsible for 24% of all CO2 emissions in the EU but it has also increased its emissions by 28% since 1990. Over the same period, households were able to reduce their emissions by 24%, and industry by as much as 32%. Without changes in mobility, we shall therefore not be able to halt climate change.
 
We need an effective and reliable infrastructure, fair rules for the whole transport sector, the highest standards of safety and binding rights for people travelling in Europe.
 
The Committee on Transport and Tourism recognised this long ago, and strives to guarantee clean, safe and affordable mobility in Europe – particularly across borders.
