Renfe chairman, Isaías Táboas, considers that the imminent deregulation of rail passenger transport is “an opportunity for Renfe” that will stimulate the company to get more people onto trains, with products such as the Avlo or the RaaS integrated mobility platform. Táboas also highlights the new update to Renfe’s Strategy Plan, the forthcoming awarding of the tender for the high-capacity trains, its internationalisation process, its commitment to innovation, and the outlook for its freight business.

He recalls that Renfe celebrated its 80th birthday on 24th January and affirms that “we must improve and consolidate what we already have and make new leaps forward, with internationalisation and digital developments. And we must continue to show people that we’re a company that cares about its customers, is efficient, effective, and makes safety its absolute priority.”

Renfe is the sector leader in the ranking of the Most Responsible Companies in passenger transport for the third consecutive year, according to Merco’s recently published report on Responsibility and Corporate Governance 2020.
