Methodological aspects

The railway section presents data from Renfe and Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya.

L'1 de gener de 2005, RENFE Es configura com una entitat pública empresarial dependent del Ministeri de Foment.

RENFE es va repartir entre dues empreses: Renfe Operadora,que opera el material i els serveis ferroviaris i Adif, que administra les infraestructures ferroviàries.

Long distance travel tickets do not correspond to the number of travellers that have used this means of transport, because tickets are not only counted that start and end within the Catalan territory, but also those entering Catalonia from non Catalan stations. The data on goods refers to that checked in at stations on Catalonia, i a més no es comptabilitzen les tones transportades per els operadors privats.

Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya (FGC) is a public company operating in the fields of transport, tourism and mountain-related activities. Its purpose is to contribute towards the improvement of transport and leisure in Catalunya. FGC manages the resources assigned to it or generated by its activity on the basis of criteria of efficacy, respect for the law and optimization of its economic and social profitability.
