DG-MOVE Fourth Railway Package

European Parliament has adopted its first reading position on the six legislative proposals of the package end of January 2014

In the European Council this week in procedure is the "market pillar" of the package (directives on governance and market opening, regulation on public service obligations 1370/2007). MEPs disregarded the Commission's proposals and the work of the TRAN-committee by adopting an unambitious stance. This could put the introduction of the Single European Rail Area at risk.

European Transport ministers on October 8 debate a series of questions in the Council drafted by the Italian Presidency. UITP, EPTO and EMTA have reviewed the questionnaire and have provided answers to the European Institutions. These questions are directly related to the revision of Regulation N° 1370/2007 (opening domestic passenger rail market to competition).

Preceding the Council debate a joint press release of UITP, EPTO and EMTA as issued, quoting the respective leaders e.g. our EMTA President. The objective of the joint initiative is to underline : - competition is not an end in itself; it is a way of achieving- thepurpose of Regulation 1370/07 is to recognise the responsibility of the competent authority to define the extent and content of public service obligations- consider that tendering procedures should be the rule to the granting of public service contracts in regional and suburban rail, while direct awards should still be possible in a limited number of strictly defined circumstances, etc.

DG-MOVE Agenda : ITS

Consultation on a draft standardization request on European standards in support of the implementation of Intelligent Transport Systems in urban areas

DG MOVE (Head of ITS mrs Claire Depré) answered to questions put by EMTA S-G on behalf of the leader of the ITS-working on August 14, 2014 for clarification:

“The European Commission is not planning to develop one standard for multimodal travel information, but rather we consider that emerging mobility services, e.g. bike sharing or car sharing schemes, would benefit from having a standardized data format, so that they can be integrated in multimodal information services in an easy and cost-efficient way.”

Q: to what extent will EMTA authorities be trusted that one or more standards will be developed that fit the needs of metropolitan transport authorities and that provides the transport market with a manageable set of interfaces for multimodal travel information?

A: The consultation of stakeholders, as done now, shall ensure that the principles and scope stated in this standardisation request reflects the needs of stakeholders, and especially that the needs of municipalities and metropolitan transport authorities can be duly reflected further on in the process. (….) Finally, when executing the standardisation request the standardising bodies will include a consultation of selected sectorial experts (….).  Also, if consulted stakeholders, such as EMTA, have experts who would like to contribute to the standardisation work, ensuring that their needs are properly taken into account, they would be more than welcome to suggest them, as the standardisation organisations are open to cooperate with experts from the field, to ensure the successful uptake of developed standards.

Deadline for input in this consultation: October 10, 2014 !
