The European Union has produced policy and legislation in the area of transport, and areas which cross-over, for many years and the establishment of a common transport area remains a key concern for policy and law-makers.

In terms of funding instruments, the Trans Europe Network - Transport (TEN-T) is a major piece of policy designed to coordinate between Member States as to how cross-border and internal transport systems can be integrated with one another. The Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) is a major funding instrument designed to support investment in strategic transport networks across the EU and which the European Partnership monitors very closely.

Further funding is available through other programmes such as the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) and more recently other funding programmes have contained a transport element. With an increasing focus on the 'smart city' policy area urban public transport, walking and health have all become areas of interest to policy-makers.
