On 31 May 2017, the European Commission released its Mobility Package, which includes the revision of the Eurovignette Directive. Highlighting 'clean, competitive and connected' mobility, the Commission proposes, for instance, to charge passenger cars and vans in the same way as heavy-duty vehicles, apply distance-based charging, introduce congestion charges and phase out the so-called 'vignette' schemes.
In the light of this event, the Forum for Mobility & Society, will organise a breakfast debate, hosted by MEP Claudia Schmidt, in the European Parliament. Topics to be discussed will encompass mobility costs, modernising of the European road network or charging for externalities.
The programme is currently being finalised and will be uploaded on the Forum's website in due time.
