ALLRAIL – Because competition matters!

 

Why competition matters?

 

„Because challenge and competition make us better. If our businesses aren’t challenged, if they don’t have to compete, then they don’t have any reason to work to serve people better. Competition is the motor that drives businesses to do better for consumers. To cut prices. To offer more choice. To produce innovative products.“

Margarethe Vestager, European Commissioner for Competition, in a speech at the
American Enterprise Institute in Washington on September 18, 2017

Taken from: How competition can build better market

 

Ms. Vestagers quote concisely sums up why competition matters. The rail sector in the EU is currently still far from being as competitive as other industries.

ALLRAIL aims to work closely with the EU Institutions, the European Union Rail Agency and Regulators to support the full establishment of a competitive Single European Railway Area.

“purchase of new & extended long distance trains will cost rail incumbent €800M that is not yet budgeted...

Investment in infrastructure, trains & digitalisation will cost €5B more -

Money that incumbent wants to get from its owner"

How is rail still failing to understand this? Rail is a system, if it fails to run a punctual train, it needs to take responsibility & get the passenger to their destination! Making passengers pull out their credit card when the system has failed is awful #passengerexperience https://t.co/yeCcoaNdFB
