    Europe's 4th Railway Package - Following the UK model

    The 4th railway package includes the proposal to open up domestic passenger railways to new entrants and services from December 2019. Companies would be able either to offer competing services, such as a new train service on a particular route, or to bid for public service rail contracts through tendering. The proposed changes would make competitive tendering mandatory for public service rail contracts in the EU.

    This approach should lower rail costs for more EU countries

    I am sure they would do it a lot better than in the UK.

    Spotted this recently in DE, was very confused for a second... I guess they'll soon get kicked out?
