Text tabled : A7-0287/2012

  Vilja Savisaar-Toomast (ALDE), in writing. (ET) I believe that the report adopted today on passenger rights in all transport modes has considerable importance for the transport sector, but above all for passengers. Given the continuous growth of the transport sector and the increasing number of passengers in all transport modes, equivalent and relevant passenger rights must be guaranteed. This is becoming ever more important because in many cases travelling involves several different transport modes rather than just one. Unfortunately, there was no support for the idea to require the Commission to consolidate all rights into a single regulation, which in my opinion would have made them more accessible and clearer for all stakeholders. One of the essential common features of passenger rights in the different transport modes is the prohibition on discriminating against passengers on the basis of their place of residence or citizenship and against travel agencies on the basis of their place of business. Furthermore, as regards passenger rights, I find it important to take the rights and possibilities of the elderly, the disabled and persons with limited mobility fully into account. Uniform pan-European passenger rights must be available for everyone. In view of the above, I voted in favour of this report.
