EU rules on the use of goods vehicles hired without drivers have been in operation for over 25 years without change and need to be reviewed to correspond to current and future needs in the transport sector. As part of the 2017 road transport mobility package, the European Commission proposed to soften the existing restrictions on using hired vehicles in international transport and establish a uniform regulatory framework, which would give transport operators across the EU equal access to the market ...

Dzelzceļa transports

FACT_SHEET 01-06-2017

Eiropas dzelzceļa transporta politikas mērķis ir izveidot vienotu dzelzceļa telpu. 2001. gadā sākās nozares atvēršana konkurencei, un tās rezultātā desmit gadu laikā ir pieņemtas trīs tiesību aktu paketes un vienreiz tiesību aktu pakete tikusi pārstrādāta. Ceturto tiesību aktu paketi, ar ko paredzēts pabeigt dzelzceļa pārvadājumu liberalizāciju, Eiropas Parlaments pieņēma visā pilnībā pirmajā lasījumā (2014. gada februārī) un tās tehnisko pīlāru arī otrajā lasījumā (2016. gada 28. aprīlī).

Lai izveidotu vienotu Eiropas autotransporta tirgu, ir jāsaskaņo dalībvalstīs spēkā esošie tiesību akti. Eiropas Savienība ir pieņēmusi tiesību aktus nodokļu, tehniskajā, administratīvajā un sociālajā jomā.

While inland navigation is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly mode of transport, it is not used to its full capacity. Apart from the need for significant infrastructure improvements, the sector is affected by limited labour mobility and shortage of qualified workers. To enhance labour mobility, the European Commission proposes to establish a common system of qualifications for workers on EU inland waterways. While the EU legislation currently applies only to boatmasters, the proposal introduces ...

Passport-free travel across the Schengen area has been called into question as a result of pressure on certain internal EU borders from the rising number of asylum-seekers and migrants seeking to reach certain Member States, as well as security concerns in the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks. In addition to the loss of personal freedom involved, the reintroduction of borders could well bring significant economic costs, which would be felt both within and outside the Schengen area. This briefing ...

High-speed rail in the EU

Briefing 29-09-2015

High-speed rail (HSR) started developing in Europe in the late 1970s, first in France and Italy, and subsequently in Germany, Spain and the UK, among others. In the early stages, its development took place largely at national level. The EU started providing specific support to European rail projects with the establishment of the trans-European transport network (TEN-T) in the early 1990s, some priority projects of which concern HSR. The EU also promotes HSR development through other means, including ...

Rail security in the EU

Pārskats 29-09-2015

The foiled Thalys train attack of August 2015 has put EU rail security under the spotlight. Increasing passenger and freight flows and relatively open access to EU rail infrastructure make rail transport a soft target for unlawful acts. A ministerial-level meeting at the end of August examined the challenges facing rail security and the possibilities for a strengthened EU response.

This vision includes the possibility of seamless door-to-door travel by different modes of transport with multimodal travel information as well as integrated ticketing. The Committee on Transport and Tourism (TRAN) has tabled, for the July plenary, an own-initiative report to promote development towards this goal.
