Costs and funding of transport

The statistics on costs and funding of transport (CFT statistics) provide an overview of the economic costs of road, rail, air and inland waterways transport. In addition to expenditure on infrastructure and means of transport, accident costs and costs for transport-related damage to the environment and health are also considered in the process. The statistics also show who bears the various costs.
