#TheFutureIsYours Leading the way for a more sustainable future
2021 e European Year of Railways, however... Our trains do not yet have freedom of movement across borders, one of the main principles of the EU. If you are an EU citizen who wants to give up flights for short and medium distance flights, you have to burn patient and an Excel file to search for itineraries, compare and analyse prices, connections, etc. Many of the trains and ticketing systems in Europe still stop at national borders. We need integrated rail transport systems, agreements between different rail operators and a simple and accessible search engine. Trainscanner is a key tool to increase the attractiveness of trans-European rail transport, the digital component of the European Green Deal tangible for us all. A European Trainscanner app would have an immediate effect for citizens, an achievement we could be proud of at the same level as the end of roaming charges but with a positive effect on reducing carbon emissions.
