By encouraging train travel, whether for the daily commute, business trips or tourism, the transport of merchandise, linking the coast and the interior, or to promote knowledge of Portugal and strengthen its European identity, rail transport has become a key element in changing the paradigm of the transport system, responding to the digital challenge and promoting the European Green Deal, with a view to being carbon neutral by 2050.
