Have you ever tried to buy a single train ticket to travel across different European countries? Most people have not. And even if they did, they would have realised that it’s much easier to book a flight between two European capital cities than the same trip with a train. It’s a pity, when you know that 8 billion passengers are using the train per year in Europe. This is 8 times more than air passengers!
Why is that? Is a European wide train ticketing possible? What are the constraints, when, in the meantime, the European Green Pass has been issued in record time to face the Covid-19 context?
These were some of the questions addressed during the free ERA webinar on 16. September 2021 ‘Towards a harmonised European rail pass’. EPF was invited as one of the panelists.
