The European Commission has released a report assessing how Member States authorities and the railway industry are applying rules for the protection of rail passengers. While the protection of rail passengers has improved since the Regulation is applicable, around 61% of all national long distance services and 83% of regional and suburban services are not yet applying the full range of rail passenger rights because Member States opted for transitional periods and exemptions. This practice could become an obstacle to the achievement of a complete rail passenger rights regime in the EU.
