TTR Plenary Day


2019 so far has been a very productive and eventful year for the ‘Redesign of the International Timetabling Process’ (TTR) programme. With the launch of national TTR implementation projects, RailNetEurope and Forum Train Europe cordially invited the many TTR contributors and stakeholders to the TTR Plenary Day, held on 25th September 2019 in Vienna. In addition to a plenary session in which an overview of the idea behind TTR and the programme’s objectives was provided, a total of five breakout sessions took place, focusing on important TTR subjects:

  • Legal framework for TTR
  • Planning and coordination of temporary capacity restrictions (TCRs)
  • Current status, results and outlook for TTR pilots
  • TTR IT landscape
  • Full description of the TTR process. 

These sessions provided a platform for interactive exchange between RU and IM/AB representatives, as well as one RB representative.

The end of the TTR Plenary Day was marked by an online survey, in which participants were asked to state their opinion regarding various TTR aspects, with promising results for TTR. The programme team highlighted that TTR is a very important programme, and the participation of all sector stakeholders is strongly encouraged to take the project to a stage where everyone will benefit from its achievements. The audience requested to be given even more information on TTR, with a focus on the implementation and organisation of TTR and the TTR process. Therefore, the TTR team will start preparing further general events.

All presentations from the TTR Plenary Day – including the survey results – are available below.
