The Vision of Railway Mobility 2050

The transportation industry, in the passenger as well as in the freight sector, will have to meet plenty of challenges throughout the decades ahead. The demands on transport systems are rising with the increasing level of traffic. According to the 2011 EU White Paper, a large part of transport shall be shifted from road to rail until 2050. Within the framework of SPIDER PLUS, 13 partners from economy and research work towards a common vision and a corresponding roadmap for a competitive and sustainable rail transport. Topics like digital networking, more efficient transport means and the ideal use of infrastructure are central elements of the visionary project.
