Press conference on the adoption of the EU White paper on Transport 2050:
Today we present our Roadmap for the Future of Transport 2050. Freedom to travel is a basic right for our citizens, and it is critical to the development of a Europe's business sector. We need a competitive European Transport System, which delivers transport for people.
We have meet very challenging goals by the 2050s, [including]:
- No more conventionally-fuelled cars in our city centres, by the middle of the century
- A 50% shift in middle distance journeys, by both passengers and freight, from road to rail and other modes.
