Policy issue: Reduce energy use per passenger-km and per tonne-km
Not much improvement in energy efficiency of road passenger and freight transport
Ship and rail transport compares very favourably with road as regards energy efficiency per tonne-km. However, the energy efficiency of rail transport has changed little during the past two decades, suggesting that additional energy saving measures need to be explored even in the rail sector.
