The rapid development of high-speed rail (HSR) networks has been observed worldwide in recent years. The experience of states operating these systems demonstrates that they are setting new standards of quality and contributing to the renaissance of railway as a mode of transport. The development of an HSR network in the TER region would significantly improve the competitiveness of rail,
The construction and maintenance of road infrastructure is an important area of most countries’ national economies, but also one of the least digitized sub-sectors. It suffers from the presence of systemic shortcomings including an insufficient level of cooperation, inadequate information management, and limited investment in technology, research and development. These shortcomings often result
The Trans-European North-South Motorway (TEM) Project was initiated to facilitate road traffic in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe and to assist with the process of integrating European transport infrastructure systems. One of the objectives of the Project is to improve the road network’s management. This report aims to provide TEM member countries with up-to-date information about how
The Trans-European North-South Motorway (TEM) Project was initiated to facilitate road traffic in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe and to assist with the process of integrating European transport infrastructure systems. In order to improve the road network’s management, the Project provides TEM member countries with benchmarking of the current capacities of asset management, with up-to-
In April 2020, a UN Task Force was set up to develop recommendations for green and healthy sustainable transport to assist member States in the post COVID-19 recovery.  Bringing together over 50 experts from member States, international institutions, academia, public transport operators and industry experts, the Task Force set up under the Transport, Health and Environment Pan-European Programme
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has placed our increasingly interconnected world in an unprecedented situation. This crisis has generated human distress and an economic downturn that is impacting global efforts to improve livelihoods and achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As the early response to restraining the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has shown, limited
Shared mobility services are the part of the shared economy, which is based on the idea of rational use of limited resources, which creates an opportunity for a person to afford highquality goods and services at a reasonable price.This study provides a brief history of the emergence and development of shared mobility services, which contribute to a more efficient use of available resources
Member States in the ECE and WHO European Region established the Transport,Health and Environment Pan European Programme (THE PEP) in 2002. By providing an intersectoral and intergovernmental policy framework, THE PEP promotes mobility and transport strategies that integrate environmental and health concerns.

Mobility as a Service (MaaS) is a new mobility concept gaining pace in many cities around the world. Its value proposition concerns integration of mobility services which is realized by providing trip planning and one-stop fare purchase for the user through a single platform.Since MaaS is only emerging, the analysis of real-life demonstrations is still limited and, thus, evidence on the
Regional maps available here Extreme weather events, some of which are increasing in intensity and frequency, as well as slower onset climate changes (for example, sea level rise) and cumulative effects can result in transportation infrastructure damages, operational disruptions, and
During recent decades governments all around the world were faced with a complicated set of options for investing in transport, including transport infrastructure. This publication examines main principles for determining the most appropriate models for financing transport infrastructure expenditures but also illustrates and analyses many innovative ways to finance transport infrastructure.
