Steps to decarbonize the European passenger transport before 2030

The time frame

Within the next two years (at the beginning of 2021) an independent European body must be in place and the first PSO contracts be offered from then.

  • The first European initiated trains can then run from December 2021.
  • 2024: A minimum network is established and running.
  • 2024-2030: Capacity is increased and investments are made to remove bottlenecks in the technical infrastructure.
  • 2030: Air transport within Europe is no longer needed and can come to an end.
