Trucks to rails

  • Tiry na tory

The "Trucks to rails" campaign mobilises citizens and decision makers to fight for transportation policies that are healthy for people and the environment. We campaign for more goods to be transported by rail. We advocate for applying the rules of "user pays" and "polluter pays" in the transportation industry. We think that covering the medical costs of the casualties, noise and gas emissions by the society is unjust. We strongly oppose the elimination of more railway lines.

Trucks to rails" is a campaign from which INSPRO took shape. Research shows that this topic is important to 9 out of 10 Polish citizens. Through 2010 and 2011 we have conducted a large initiative that aimed at providing information with the use of radio advertisement and billboards. We have toured Poland twice with the exposition. Our petition was signed by over 80 thousand people. Bartłomiej Topa, Hirek Wrona, Stanisław Sojka, Magdalena Popławska and the Ani Mru Mru cabaret, among others, became the ambasadors of this campaign.

We have prepared an expert report "Trucks to rails, goods for trains" ("Tiry na tory, towary na kolej”) and organised a series of conferences. We are cooperating with local communities that suffer from the expansion of truck traffic.

For such communities, we have prepared a practical guide "Trucks to rails – a guide of fighting communities" ("Tiry na tory – poradnik walczących społeczności”). Thanks to our petition, the ministerial Intermodal Transportation Council (Rada ds. Transportu Intermodalnego) was formed. Currently we are focusing on advocacy. The execution of the "Trucks to rails" idea was written into the election programme of the ruling party.

We also cooperate with a European federation called "Transport & Environment”, which campaigns for balanced transportation.
