Rezumat/Abstract. Railways confronted substantial challenges through last years and made major progress in addressing them. Also, the European Commission identified some concrete priorities between 2011 and 2012, priorities that boost growth, including increasing investment in transport and infrastructures. Therefore, European Union transport policies aim at fostering a clean, safe and efficient travel throughout Europe, underpinning the right of citizens to travel freely throughout the EU. With arguments about access, competitivity, responsability, sustainability and security partly unresolved, this article presents that the concepts has been around for some time and has gradually been applied to existing railway transportation. We must see those rail services and infrastructure that there sits empty, slowly deteriorating in some EU member states, because railways brings us great benefits, but also great responsabilities.
