International rail timetabling: seamless connectivity to attract passengers and freight customers
Thursday, September 30, 2021 · 10:00
ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
As the climate crisis deepens, governments are committed to moving passengers and freight to rail, the greenest mass transport mode.
A key part of the European Union’s initiatives for the Year of Rail is enabling seamless connectivity for international services through new cross-continental timetables.
This webinar debate will explore the many benefits of increased cross-border rail connectivity and look at how to plan, test the feasibility of, and implement new timetables. How can we best align national timetables, manage capacity, and provide the smooth and fully informed experience that passengers and freight customers demand?
