In 2050 we will opt for the most appropriate mode of emission-free transport for each journey we undertake. Journey planners will help us make these choices by providing us with information about the sustainability of travel recommendations. For everyday travel and outings, we will share vehicles and use rapid transit. Arranging virtual meetings will mean we can avoid unnecessary business trips. We will mostly remain within Europe for holidays and will travel by train. We will use as little energy as possible to transport our goods, and the energy we do use will be renewable, with most of the journey taking place by water and rail. Urban centres will be efficiently supplied by combining consignments and delivering them from distribution hubs.
