European high-speed operators team up to provide seamless transportation between routes

Several European high-speed rail operators recently partnered to form Railteam, a coalition aimed at improving coordination between routes.

Comprising Germany’s Deutsche Bahn, France’s SNCF, the Netherland’s NS Hispeed, Austria’s OBB, Switzerland’s SBB, Belgium’s SNCB, and the UK, France and Belgium’s Eurostar, Railteam will work to provide multi-lingual information in stations and onboard trains. The group also will try to improve connections between routes, and better coordinate train departure and arrival times.

“Railteam’s aim is to offer travelers seamless high-speed train travel across international borders in western Europe,” said group spokesman Gunnar Meyer in a prepared statement.
