High-speed rail is a comfortable, safe, flexible and economically-sustainable means of transport. Its environmental performance and socio-economical usefulness mean that it can help the European Union achieve its transport and climate policy goals. Europe needs a viable cross-border high-speed rail network and an extensive European night train system.
1. What specific plans does the Commission have for the development of a common cross-border high-speed rail network?
2. What measures will the Commission take to develop the night train network in Europe, thereby making journeys by train rather than flights within Europe attractive for more consumers?
