On 18 November, a group 0f 25 young professionals from across Europe converged in Brussels to launch Train2EU, the truly European railway company. Train2EU stands for improving international train travel in Europe and for a better integrated system.
We believe in the power of co-operation: overcoming the divide of competition, we unite young professionals of many European railway companies, who share a passion for European rail travel. We are TRAIN2EU: the first truly European railway company. A movement, where we work together on more and better cross-border rail-based travelling services in Europe.
Train2EU was founded by four Dutch companies and organisations:
- Royal HaskoningDHV – Leading international consultancy
- 9292 Travel Information – Dutch public transport travel information provider
- Jonge Veranderaars – Leading organisation for public transport young professionals
- Natuur & Milieu – Dutch NGO advocating for nature and the environment
Though there are many facets of the industry which need tending to, Train2EU is focusing firstly on an integrated ticketing system as well as European-wide real time travel information. Meeting us at the Parliament was Wim van de Camp (NL-CDA) as well as two representatives of the Community of European Railways (CER). More information about our goals can be found in this presentation.
In January 2015 we were featured in Railway Gazette International as well as 9292 Reiswijzer. You can read both of these articles here:
