Connecting Europe Express is an express train which shall travel across Europe starting in Spetember. The train shall stop in several European capitals, in order to promote the numerous benefits of railways, one of the 5 major stops being in Bucharest. We are proud to be part of this project. CFR Călători shall operate the train on Romanian territory. It shall depart from Lisbon, shall pass through 35 European cities and shall have Ljubljana as a final destination, thus suggesting the Presidency transfer from Portugal to Slovenia, which shall occur this year.
The project was announced in the framework of the European Year of Rail by the European Commissioner for Transport Adina Vălean, which stated that the Connecting Europe Express train shall represent a real and tangible example for the power of railways to connect the entire European Union. The project includes a series of events which shall highlight the benefits of railway transport.
Follow us in order to find out more information about the initiatives which shall be implemented during the European Year of Rail and the way you can join us and the European officials in this journey.
Choose the railway and take advantage of a durable, safe and innovating transport, which connects people, cities and regions of the European Union!
