Have you ever tried to buy a single train ticket to travel across different European countries? Probably not. And even if you did, you would have realised that it’s much easier to book a flight between two European capital cities than the same trip with a train. It’s a pity, when you know that 8 billion passengers are using the train per year in Europe. This is 8 times more than air passengers!

Why is that? Is a European wide train ticketing possible? What are the constraints, when, in the meantime, the European Green Pass has been issued in record time to face the Covid-19 context? These questions, and many more, will be addressed during this free ERA webinar. Join us if you’re interested in understanding how the EU is now moving towards a real harmonised railway ticketing, the European Rail Pass.
