Potential of modal shift to rail transport

Study on the projected effects on GHG emissions and transport volumes

This study was commissioned by the Community of European Railways (CER) and concerns the potential for modal shift from road and air transport to rail. This study is potentially even more interesting, since the European Commission’s new White Paper on Transport cites modal shift as one of the key policies for the coming decades. In this study the potential for growth of rail transport in Europe has been investigated in three different ways as well as the potential reduction of CO2 emissions that this could deliver.
