The proposed revision of Regulation (EC) N°1073/2009 aimed at opening up domestic coach and bus markets was published by the European Commission on November 8th 2017 along with other texts contained in the Second Mobility Package.
The Commission’s proposal for the review of Regulation 1073 revolves around four key elements:
- The liberalisation of commercial national coach and bus services markets and the corresponding restrictions and authorisation procedures;
- Access to terminals – conditions and procedures;
- The conditions for establishment of non-resident carriers and the ensuing modification of the definition of ‘cabotage’;
- The regulator’s role in monitoring compliance with these new obligations.
This position paper presents the main elements of UITP’s position regarding the first three aspects of the proposal.
