Traveling by car is the most common form of transport in the EU

first_imgMore information on the share of passenger kilometers traveled, within the Member States of the European Union during 2017, can be found HERE. On the other hand, the question of the sustainability of low-budget air transport is being raised more and more, because profit margins are very low, as well as a large negative impact on the environment. This is exactly where the future travel trend is coming by train, through a fast and efficient railway. In the future, a strong and fast railway network will be the generator of as much passenger traffic as possible, where, unfortunately, Croatia lags far behind due to poor infrastructure. As far as Croatia is concerned, road transport is also in the first place and makes up 84,3 percent of the total traveled passenger kilometers. In second place is bus transport of 13,4 percent, and train transport is only 2,4 percent, which, in these two forms of transport, positions us at the bottom half of the scale compared to other EU members. By the way, when we talk about tourist arrivals in Croatia, 78% of guests come to the destination by car, 15% by air, 4% by bus. The future of tourism will certainly be more and more focused on ecology and sustainability, and the leaders of this trend, according to all research, are certainly the Millennials. Among the member states of the European Union, the largest share of passenger kilometers by car was recorded in Lithuania (91,1%), followed by Portugal (88,5%) and Slovenia (86,5%). As far as train travel is concerned, the most kilometers were recorded in Austria (11,9%), the Netherlands (11,4%) and France (10,8%), while in Hungary (21,1%), Cyprus ) and Malta (19%) the most kilometers traveled by bus.center_img Compared to train and bus, car travel is the most dominant form of domestic transport in all EU Member States. In 2017, car travel accounted for 83,3 percent of all passenger-kilometers traveled across the European Union, compared to 8,8 percent of bus-traveled kilometers and 7,9 percent for trains. After all, 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, an activist against climate change from Sweden, was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, Time magazine declared her one of the most influential teenagers in the world, and she became an icon of the global movement against climate change. There is even a trend and an initiative in Sweden. “flight shame”Where passengers give up using the plane as a means of transport, precisely because of the large negative environmental footprint, and train travel is encouraged.
