A set of milestones is to keep the strategy on track. By 2030, the Commission aims to have in Europe at least 30 million zero-emission cars on roads, 100 climate neutral cities, double the high-speed rail traffic (compared to 2015), achieve that scheduled collective travel for journeys under 500 km is carbon neutral, automated mobility is deployed at large scale and zero-emission marine vessels are ready for the market. By 2035, zero-emission large aircraft should be market-ready.
By 2050, the Commission expects that in the EU, nearly all cars, vans, buses and trucks are to be zero-emission, rail freight traffic will double and high-speed rail traffic triple, while the multimodal trans-European transport network (TEN-T) should become fully operational and ensure high-speed connectivity. The use of short sea shipping and inland navigation should increase by 50%. The Commission wants to achieve this by strengthening the existing rules, proposing new legislation and providing support measures and guidance.
