Policy issue:  Fair and efficient pricing across modes


Key assessment

On average, passenger transport prices have increased at a higher rate than consumer prices the last 5 years - a rather short time period. In three countries (Denmark, Italy and Luxembourg) the opposite occurred. Air transport prices have shown the lowest increase in price of all transport modes. For freight transport prices no EU wide data exists, but a Dutch example shows that the price of road, rail and inland waterway transport decreased by 36, 45 and 52 % respectively over the last 20 years.
