Low-cost air carriers and tourism

20-06-2017

The liberalisation of air transport, which resulted in the creation of new routes and new business models for airlines, in particular the development of low-cost carriers, has led to lower fares and wider access to air transport. In many countries, air transport is a catalyst for tourism development. As low-cost carriers in the EU have experienced substantial growth, serving mostly short-haul destinations, they are increasingly looking into investing into the long-haul market for their future development ...

Research for the TRAN Committee - Infrastructure funding challenges in the sharing economy

04-05-2017

The study analyses the disruption created by shared mobility in the funding of transport infrastructure. While recognizing the benefits of shared mobility in terms of reduction of private car use, the study identifies that there might be short term negative effects on the revenues of long distance railway and coach operators. It also points out other potential risks, which include capture of value by commissions charged by platforms mediating mass-transit services (Mobility as a Service), freeriding ...

It also points out other potential risks, which include capture of value by commissions charged by platforms mediating mass-transit services (Mobility as a Service), freeriding and lower tax contributions. The study makes recommendations to reduce these risks.

Social, Economic and Legal Consequences of Uber and Similar Transportation Network Companies (TNCs)

15-10-2015

Commercial success and massive uptake of services provided by companies such as Uber trigger a number of questions for regulators both in the United States and in the European Union. The main question is if such web based applications or platforms merit their success solely to innovation or if their success is due to exploitation of loopholes in regulatory requirements. Citizens and consumer organisations question if regulatory responses to these innovative services are dictated by genuine concerns ...

Commercial success and massive uptake of services provided by companies such as Uber trigger a number of questions for regulators both in the United States and in the European Union. The main question is if such web based applications or platforms merit their success solely to innovation or if their success is due to exploitation of loopholes in regulatory requirements. Citizens and consumer organisations question if regulatory responses to these innovative services are dictated by genuine concerns over proper regulation of transportation services and consumer safety or constitute a protection of traditional incumbent transport operators.

Current Challenges and Future Prospects for EU Secondary Airports

15-05-2015

Around 250 European airports handle less than 5 million passengers per annum - a good one third of them less than 200,000. This analysis shows that all are affected by the changing structure of the airline industry, and that most of them are losing money. It also shows, however, that these similarities shall not mask the diversity of experience and circumstances, and the very different roles played by these airports.

La presente nota informativa analizza il dibattito attualmente in corso sul futuro della politica europea in materia di mobilità e trasporti. Raccoglie tendenze e sfide quali la differenziazione sociale, il cambiamento demografico e gli aspetti sociali e ne esamina il significato che assumono nel settore della mobilità e dei trasporti da una prospettiva socioambientale. Nella seconda parte, il documento procede a una disamina critica degli attuali documenti sulla futura evoluzione delle politiche dei trasporti. La sezione finale valuta quali caratteristiche possa presentare una cultura della mobilità sostenibile in una società che presenta una forma sempre più differenziata e pluralistica e si focalizza sull’aspetto dei prodotti di trasporto multiopzionali. Le problematiche riprese dalla presente nota informativa sono state esposte e discusse nell’ambito di un workshop dal titolo “Il futuro dei trasporti” tenutosi il 2 dicembre 2009 presso il Parlamento europeo.
