Citizens' summary

Communication on a sustainable future for transport:

· The EU’s transport system must continue to provide efficient travel and freight
solutions for passengers and businesses, and be made more sustainable. In
particular, congestion in and around cities and greenhouse gas emissions are
still too high.
· The current agenda for EU transport policy comes to an end in 2010, so it is
time to look at future challenges and prepare a new policy paper.

vision for passenger and goods transportation. This vision will shape future
transport policies in the EU
