PORTUGAL: What a disappointing start to the EU Year of Rail 2021
Since 2011, the gradual opening of the EU Single Rail Market has benefited users, taxpayers & the environment.

PORTUGAL: Que começo decepcionante do Ano Europeu do Transporte Ferroviário 2021 !
Desde 2011, a abertura gradual do mercado único ferroviário da UE tem beneficiado os utilizadores, os contribuintes e o ambiente.

Isto impulsionou as economias regionais ao mesmo tempo que reduziu a pegada de carbono.
