Rail transport statistics in the European Union

19-10-2016

EU transport policy has set itself ambitious goals: among other things, to increase the competitiveness and share of rail freight and passenger services and to create a Single European Railway Area. From this perspective, rail statistics shed a clear light on the EU rail sector and thus help in better evaluating developments in it. At its second October 2016 plenary, the European Parliament is expected to vote on a 2013 proposal for a regulation on rail transport statistics.
