This report summarizes the research findings under Work Package 4 - Travel and Logistics Service Development and Demand – in RBGC project.
The objective of Work Package 4 was to identify the crucial agents in private passenger and freight transport within the Eastern Baltic Sea Region, and to assess their growth prospects against the transport network in this area, with particular attention to the Rail Baltica railway. The report findings indicate that rail systems could play a much more important role in the Rail Baltica corridor than they do nowadays. The rise in railway’s prominence is conditional on the provision of cost-attractive services and quality infrastructure to guarantee short travelling times, high safety levels in respect of freight and passenger transport, and also service reliability.
