Transportation

In the EU, transport policy focuses on building a competitive transport system that will increase mobility; remove major barriers to transport operations, infrastructure and investment; foster innovation; complete the EU internal transport market; and fuel growth and employment.

At the same time, the EU is working to dramatically reduce its dependence on fossil fuels and cut carbon emissions from transport by 60 percent by 2050.

By 2050, the EU aims to eliminate the use of conventionally-fueled cars in cities; ensure that at least 40 percent of the fuel used for aviation is sustainable, low carbon fuel; cut shipping emissions by at least 40 percent; shift half of medium-distance intercity passenger and freight journeys from road to rail and waterborne transport.
