Rail passengers’ rights regulation: over 500 amendments published in the European Parliament’s Transport & Tourism Committee!

We’re delighted to report that all our amendments to the draft report on the Rail passengers’ rights regulation have been tabled by MEPs. We were very pleased to see strong cross-party support for our amendments.

There were more than 582 amendments tabled to the draft report on the Rail passengers’ rights regulation were published on the European Parliament’s website. These are currently available in English, French and Spanish - see amendments 56 to 348 and amendments 349 to 637. We sent our proposed amendments to the Transport and Tourism (TRAN) Committee rapporteur, Boguslav Liberadzki, as well as shadow rapporteurs and several other MEPs.

We were particularly pleased to see that several MEPs fully support our call to widen the scope of the regulation and are calling for urban, suburban and regional rail transport to be included in the scope. Several MEPs are also keen to put an end to the requirement for pre-notification when booking assistance, supporting our call for ‘Turn Up And Go’ to be the norm, including for passengers with disabilities. We’re also very pleased to see that many MEPs across party lines have listened to our call for strong provisions on disability-related training for all staff.
