European Mobility Week. Check out with the online quiz by Active Citizenship Network "What kind of traveler you are?" and discover our initiatives in different European countries.
By plane and train, when I entitled to a refund of the ticket? And if I travel by bus for long-distance? What is meant by multimodal transport? And for carpooling? And yet, by when will be deleted passenger cars powered by traditional fuels? And the old driving licenses?
On http://activecitizenship.net there is an online free quiz to test yourself to find out if we are able to better protect our passengers rights, how far our daily choices of mobility are actually "sustainable", how important is the transport sector in a European dimension and, consequently, what steps European Union is developing.
Participate in the quiz and see if you are a traveler uninformed, inattentive or "smart", click on http://activecitizenship.net/consumers-rights/projects/122-online-quiz-and-free-guide-for-passengers.html.
