Equal rights to train travel: politicians and organisations across Europe urge EU leaders
Travelling by train is still difficult for persons with reduced mobility. Although this means of transport is increaslingly pointed out as more environmentally sustainable, millions of persons with reduced mobility cannot access it freely, because boarding assistance is not available or subject to lengthy pre-notification periods. AGE has joined over 200 politicians and organisations to call on the Council to improve the Rail Passenger’s Rights regulation. Together we sent a letter to EU leaders asking them to support the reduction of pre-notification for train assistance, as.proposed by the European Parliament.
