ERFA's Annual event, held on April 18th was dedicated to the actions needed to reduce track access charges for rail and improve the competitive offer. The rules of the European Union oblige Member States to put in place incentives for reducing rail access charges. Access charges are a significant cost on the rail business, especially as for the most part rail?s competitor road doesn?t pay a similar fee for using the infrastructure. The question is: how can be done that access charges support rail's competitiveness?
We are glad to announce the ERFA Annual Event Lunch Seminar. The broad theme is "How to reduce access charges for rail and improve the competitive offer?"
