DG MOVE has published the Study on the Prices and Quality of Rail Passenger Services, which investigates how the fares and quality standards applicable to rail services in Member States are set and have evolved. The study, conducted by Steer Davies Gleave, is also looking at the impacts of liberalisation, competition and transport policy in relation to rail services, and assesses the competitiveness of rail vis-à-vis air and road travel. It differentiates between suburban, regional and long distance services and covers all Member states (except Cyprus and Malta who have no railways) as well as Norway and Switzerland.
