Bahnreisende in Großbritannien können ihre Fahrscheine wesentlich leichter als in der EU kaufen – Es ist Zeit, dies zu ändern
Im Großbritannien werden alle Bahnfahrkarten bei allen Fahrkartenverkäufern verkauft. Die Deutsche Bahn (DB) und ihr Lobbyverband verweigern dies jedoch in Deutschland und der EU - warum schränken sie die Bahnoptionen ein, die Fahrgäste buchen können?
Passengers Can Book Rail Journeys Much More Easily in the UK than in the EU – It’s Time for EU Transport Commissioner Vălean’s New MDMS Proposal to Put Passengers First
In the United Kingdom, All Rail Tickets Are Sold at All Rail Ticket Vendors.Yet Deutsche Bahn (DB) and its lobby refuse this in Germany and the EU – Why Are They Restricting the Operators that Passengers Can Book?
With the Climate and Cost of Living Crisis, the EU’s Multimodal Digital Mobility Services (MDMS) Proposal Must Convert Car Drivers to Rail
The recent heatwaves and floods across Europe reminded us of the current climate crisis, to which the EU's transport sector - especially the private individual motor car - contributes significantly. The EU Commission must make sure to focus MDMS efforts on the vast majority (80%) of EU citizens that use the private individual motor car by ensuring that All Tickets are Sold at All Ticket Vendors – and with this 100% Transparency For EU Citizens: Nobody Should Restrict What They Can See, Based Purely Upon Where They Go To Book.
MDMS Proposal: ALL Policy Options Must Be Back on the Table
Recently, a EU Commission representative announced that ALL policy options were back at the table for the upcoming proposal on Mutldimodal Digital Mobility Services (MDMS), especially regarding ticket re-selling and the scope (cross-border journeys).
We welcome this announcement, but we also call on the EU Commission to ensure that ALL policy options are back on the table, including a mandate on large MDMS (e.g. the rail incumbents' in-house ticket retail channels) to show and sell the offers of willing rail operators on FRAND terms.
