Today, the European Commission’s Directorate General for Transport and Mobility (DG MOVE) presented its vision for a crucial upcoming piece of legislation – the Regulation on Multimodal Digital Mobility Services (MDMS).
EPF, together with other organisations representing diverse interests from across the mobility sector (consumers, business travelers, rail new entrants, travel intermediaries) strongly support this initiative: “We fully share the objective of the European Commission to make travelers’ lives simpler by facilitating the transparent comparison and combination of transport offers, within and across modes. To live up to the promises of the EU Green Deal, modal shift towards more sustainable transport modes is essential; the MDMS Regulation will provide tools for consumers to travel greener, breaking one of the most frustrating barriers to multimodality.” However, we voice our strong concerns regarding the presented scope of obligations for transport operators. To fully achieve its ambitious objectives, the MDMS Regulation must cover relevant players of all modes.
