Europe Transportation

The political geography of Europe divides the continent into over 50 sovereign states and territories. Transport in Europe provides the movement needs for over 700 million people and associated freight. The industrial revolution has led to a high level of cooperation between European countries in developing and maintaining transport networks. This disintegration along with increased movement of people Supranational and intergovernmental organizations such as the European Union (EU), Council of Europe and OSCE have lead to the development of international standards and agreements that allow people and freight to cross the borders of Europe, largely with unique levels of choice and ease. Road, rail, air and water transportation are all popular and important across Europe. The European Economic Area allows the free movement of goods across 30 states. The Schengen Area enables border control-free travel between 25 European countries. Europe was the location of the world's first railways and motorways and is now the location of some of the world's busiest ports and airports. Freight transportation has a high level of interposal compatibility. In Eastern and Southern Europe often have less coverage and infrastructure problems. Rail networks in Western and Central Europe are often well maintained and well developed, Electrified railway networks function at a plethora of different voltages AC and DC varying from 750 to 25,000 volts and signaling systems vary from country to country hindering cross-border traffic. Usually national railway companies were split to separate divisions or independent companies for infrastructure, passenger and freight operations. The passenger operations may be further divided to long-distance and regional services, because regional services often operate under public service obligation, while long-distance services usually operate without subsidies. The European Union aims to make cross-border operations easier as well as to introduce Healthy competition to national rail networks. The International E-road network is an international road numbering system covering major highways in Europe, but most road management and classification takes place at a local or national level. Countries like UK, Ireland, Malta and Cyprus traffic drives on the left. In the rest of Europe traffic mainly drives on the right with a few rare exceptions for certain stretches of motorway or a small country road. Toll roads are common in some European countries with the Vignette a particular notable road tax. Despite an extensive road and rail network, most long distance travel within Europe is by air. A large tourism industry also attracts many visitors to Europe, most of who arrive into one of Europe's many large international airports.
