Law Resources: Road and Rail Transport
European Union (EU) transport policy aims to ensure the smooth, efficient, safe, and free movement of people and goods throughout the EU by means of integrated networks using all modes of transport (road, rail, water and air). EU policy also deals with issues as wide-ranging as climate change, passenger rights, clean fuels, and cutting customs-related red tape at ports. Governed by Title VI (Articles 90 to 100) of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU, transport is one of the EU's most strategic common policies. Future policy will be largely based on a 2011 White Paper, comprising 40 initiatives designed to generate growth, jobs, reduce dependence on imported oil, and cut the sector's carbon emissions by 60% by 2050.
