ABSTRACT

This edition of the European Transport Regulation Observer focuses on the 2nd Florence Intermodal Forum, where policy makers, regulators, associations and operators of both the rail and the air transport sector came together to discuss current issues that impact both sectors alike. The central question was whether high-speed rail and low-cost air were competing or complementing modes of transport.

This Observer contains contributions from:

  • Prof. Matthias Finger (EUI/EPFL) on Low-Cost Air and High-Speed Rail: an untapped potential for complementarity? 
  • Lorenzo Vannacci (European Commission Directorate General Joint Research Centre) on Competition and Cooperation in Rail and Air 
  • Dr. Eva Valeri (DEAMS, Faculty of Economics, University of Trieste) on Competition between Air and High-Speed Rail: the case of the Rome-Milan Corridor

The European Transport Regulation Observer is a series of Workshop Paper aimed at highlighting some of the most interesting issues and remarks of the Florence Forums from the perspective of applied research, providing the readers with some news on the topic and additional suggestion for further readings.
