TransCare - Influence of truck tolls on the modal split in cargo traffic.
This scientific study assesses the impact of higher road tolls in Europe on the modal split between road and rail. According to the results, by increasing road tolls by 1 euro per kilometre, the shift of road transport volume to rail would only increase by less than 1.22%. The study concludes that an increase in quality service would be the only factor to foster a potential increase in rail transport.
