This program’s objective is to rescue railways as a logistic alternative, as well as to break the monopoly in offer of rail services, with an expected reduction of fares. The recently created state-owned company EPL – Empresa de Planejamento e Logística, directed by Mr. Bernardo Figueiredo, will evaluate all these railway projects, to determine how can they be feasible, if by means of a concession to a private company to build an operate, or by means of a Public-Private Partnership”.
