2021 is the European Year of Railways
The European Commission's (EC) initiative highlights the benefits of rail as a sustainable, smart and safe means of transport. During 2021, various activities will bring rail to the forefront across the continent, encourage citizens and businesses to use rail, and contribute to the goal of the European Green Plan, according to which the EU should become climate neutral by 2050.
One of the key elements of the Plan is the introduction of cleaner and healthier means of transport, given that the transport sector is currently responsible for around 25% of EU greenhouse gas emissions. The European Green Plan calls for a 90% reduction in traffic emissions by 2050.
To achieve this goal and ensure that transport continues to play its role during the transition to a clean, digital and innovative EU economy, the EC adopted a Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy in December 2020. It paves the way for more sustainable, smarter and resilient mobility, and includes milestones towards doubling rail freight by 2050 and tripling high-speed rail connections by 2050. During 2021, the EC will present an action plan to strengthen rail passenger transport, which in accordance with the Strategy provides for measures to improve capacity and simplify the system of ticket sales for various modes of transport to further increase the attractiveness of rail.
