 The measure aims at preserving the competitiveness of rail passenger operations and maintaining a   stable, reliable and sufficient service offer. The measure, with a total budget of €270 million, enables   Italy to relieve rail freight operators and rail commercial passenger operators of part of the costs related   to track access charges (i.e. the charges that railway companies have to pay for the use of the rail   network) during the period from 10 March to 31 December 2020. This support helps rail operators in   Italy to cope with the difficult situation caused by the coronavirus outbreak, preventing the loss of market   shares to road operators and preserving the benefits of the shift of traffic from road to rail achieved prior   to the coronavirus outbreak.
