Pushing a standardised rail IT booking system for EU

The European Commision launched yesterday a new regulation on the technical specification for interoperability relating to the subsystem 'telematics applications for passenger services' of the trans-European rail system. The document underlines that ticket details and reserations will be standardised, allowing information exchanges between rail companies and ticket vendors. Besides, the regulation requires operators to make timetabling open to the public and forces rail partners to share fare information.
A second regulation will be presented next year to standardise rail operators computer systems and practices to facilitate data transfer among them.
