DG TREN Communication on the future of transport

The Commission has launched a reflection on the updating of its Transport policy, which included external studies evaluating past policies and defining future scenarios, as well as consultations with experts and stakeholders through specialised focus groups and through a high level stakeholders’ conference. The ideas put forward in this Communication are meant to stimulate further debate aimed at identifying policy options, without prejudging the formulation of concrete proposals in the next White Paper of 2010.


In 2001, the Commission issued a White Paper 1 setting an agenda for transport policy throughout 2010. This programme was updated in 2006 2 . It has now been decided that it is now time to take stock and define a vision for the future of transport and mobility in order to prepare new transport policy orientations for the next ten years.
