Abstract

The current paper focuses its study on the Southeast Europe (SEE) and tries to identify real passenger needs (demand) which can reveal rail dynamic and competitiveness in specific connections. Based on a dedicated examination of 11 SEE city hubs (Bologna, Venice, Trieste, Ljubljana, Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest, Thessaloniki, Sofia, Zagreb and Bucharest) examined within “Rail4SEE – Rail Hub Cities for South East Europe” project, the paper aims to conclude in a quantitative analysis of demand data at regional and transnational level and on a comparative analysis based both on demand and supply data that will open the ground for the development of an accurate SEE modal split model.
