European Parliament endorses agreement on boat passengers

Date: 12/07/2010

With approval of the report by Ignes Ayala Sender (S&D, Spain) on Tuesday 6 July, MEPs signed up to the trialogue agreement relating to the strengthening of boat passengers' rights, They nonetheless refused the similar draft agreement applying to the rights of bus and coach passengers, opposing in second reading the Council's draft regulation reached last December.

Approved by a large majority, the report by Antonio Cancian (EPP, Italy) extends the scope of the text (by introducing regional transport services), shortens the time for transposition (three years renewable once rather than five years renewable three times as the Council had advocated) and does away with the exemptions imposed on national transport services. The first conciliation meeting is scheduled for November.
