Building up on the momentum offered by the official start of the European Year of Rail we send an open letter together with Greenpeace, 2CELSIUS, Back on Track, the European Network to Promote Cross Border Night Trains, Germanwatch, Instytut Spraw Obywatelskich, Natuur & Milieu, and Réseau Action Climat to:

  • Pedro Nuno Santos, Minister for Infrastructure and Housing of Portugal, Chair of the Transport, Telecommunications and Energy Council of the European Union

  • Adina Vălean, European Commissioner for Transport

  • Frans Timmermans, Executive Vice-President of the European Commission for the European Green Deal

A true European rail system creates jobs & save emissions & connect people after lockdown. Time to invest in a rail renaissance in Europe is now!
