Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc and the Directorate-General for Transport and Mobility (DG MOVE) invited stakeholders to take stock of the development of multimodal passenger transport. While passengers increasingly combine different transport modes, they face various difficulties regarding their passenger rights, route planning and the ticketing process. The conference presented the opportunity to discuss current challenges with representatives from the public and private sector – including passenger rights organisations - bearing in mind the advance of new technologies and the European legal framework on EU-wide Multimodal Travel Information Services.
The conference took place on 19 November 2018 from 9:00 to 16:30, at the EU Conference Centre Albert Borschette, Rue Froissart 36, 1040 Brussels. The conference revealed key actors’ thoughts on the future of multimodal transport.
The event was organised as part of the 2018 Year of Multimodality which Commissioner Bulc has called for to promote the functioning of the transport sector as a fully integrated system.
