Policy issue: Reduction of external costs of transport
Passenger transport is estimated to be responsible for 65 % of total external costs. The average external costs (per passenger-km) of cars are the highest, then aircraft, bus and train. For freight, water and rail transport have the lowest external costs per tonne-km, with air transport and trucking 10 and 5 times, respectively, more than rail.
