REIF


The REIF Shift to regional rail – Award aims at sharing best practices and at providing an opportunity for communication and knowledge exchange among regions and local contexts all over the EU regarding policies to support rail and intermodal freight transport.
The focus of the award is on best practices concerning public actions, measures and policies, which have been implemented or which are under implementation by Regional government and which produced outstanding results and achievements in promoting rail freight transport.

our PURPOSE!

Did you know that although Central Europe is facing strong growth in traffic volume, the total volume of freight moved by rail has decreased significantly over the past few decades? Current forecasts predict that by 2030 there will be a significant increase in freight volume, and this expected growth in traffic on the streets will raise serious transport and environmental problems. To reverse this negative trend, huge investments are underway with a focus on the main rail corridors. Complementary to this initiative the REIF project aims at increasing the modal share of rail freight transport through mitigation measures for the regional rail feeder system.

2021 Year of Rail

2021 is the european year of rail!

Rail connects people and businesses across the EU and beyond. It supports EU's efforts, under the European Green Deal, to become a climate-neutral continent by 2050 and to pave the way for a new era of smart mobility. 

To shine a light on rail's key role for EU economy, industry and society at large, the  EU declared 2021 the European Year of Rail.
