7-8 June 2019. Friday - Saturday. This year’s European Passenger Federation Annual Conference is in Stockholm on 7-8th June and the themes are possibilities and risks of a liberalized public transport market from the passenger’s perspective (day 1) and the future generation’s demand for public transport - both urban and long-distance journeys (day 2). Railfuture members qualify for discounted conference rates. The conference promises to be an interesting and thought-provoking event as well as offering the chance to meet public transport campaigners from elsewhere in Europe and we urge those Railfuture members that are interested to book in and support EPF. For more details and to register go to EPF.

Railfuture usually holds two national conferences each year, normally in the summer and autumn (in addition to its national AGM for members). The conferences are competitively priced, to be within rail users' price range, and are open to everyone. Railfuture members are usually offered a chance to attend conferences at a discounted rate if booked early; for non-members there's often a discounted 'book and join' package.
Details of other internal Railfuture meetings, open only to elected/selected members, are here: Rf-internal.
