Netherlands tops EU’s Transport Scoreboard 2015

The European Commission has published the second edition of the “EU Transport Scoreboard“, a benchmark which compares how Member States perform in 29 categories covering all aspects of transport. The objective of the Scoreboard is to help Member States to identify areas requiring priority investments and actions, in order to create a Single European Transport Area with high standards, notably in terms of sustainability. This is essential to the deepening of the internal market and to the shift towards a low-carbon economy, two priorities of the Commission.

The Netherlands top this year’s edition with high scores in 16 categories, followed by Sweden, Finland, the United Kingdom and Denmark.

The Scoreboard can be consulted either by country or by one of the following topics:

  • Internal market (including indicators on rail market opening, pending court cases about infringements of EU law and the rate of transposition of EU transport directives into national law);
  • Investments and infrastructure (including quality of infrastructure for the different modes of transport and completion rates of the Trans-European Network for Transport (TEN-T));
  • Energy Union and innovation (including share of renewable energy in transport fuel consumption, new cars using alternative fuels and time spent by drivers in traffic jams); and
  • People (including road and railway safety, women employed in transport and consumer satisfaction with different modes of transport).

The following table shows how often each country appears among the top and bottom performers. The overall score is calculated by subtracting negative scores from positive ones:
