Paris To Barcelona By Train Every Day At A Low Fare – Why Does Nobody Sell This Connection?
• Paris to Barcelona (in both directions) is one of the most popular cross-border transport corridors in Europe.
• Unfortunately, there are still very few high-speed trains on this route, and these are often very expensive.

Open letter to EVP Timmermans: Multimodal Digital Mobility Services – Friends of MDMS call for ambition, halfway measures are unacceptable
Friends of MDMS, comprised of ALLRAIL, BEUC, BT4Europe, ECTAA, EPF, eu travel tech, Europe on Rail, GBTA, mofair and Transport & Environment, call on EU Executive Vice President Frans Timmermans to ensure that the Commission keeps a high level of ambition for the forthcoming initiative on Multimodal Digital Mobility Services. The interests of European travellers and reaching the EU climate goals must remain at the heart of the initiative.
Any downgrading in the level of ambition for this initiative would translate into missing the opportunity of unleashing the potential of MDMS as modal shift and competition enablers.
