Transport Policy in the European Union

This chapter provides an overview of transport policy in the European Union (EU). In order to facilitate an understanding of transport policy in the group of EU countries, Section 2 provides a brief outline of the EU and its institutions. Section 3 presents the main issues leading to the appearance of common transport policy. The liberalization legislation is presented in somewhat more detail for air transport, maritime transport, inland shipping, rail transport, and road transport in Section 4. Section 5 covers the more general issues of antitrust and state aid, while the last section concentrates on the European infrastructure policy and the charging for infrastructure usage.
