The body of greatest significance to Austria's transport policy is unquestionably the European Union (EU).

The transport ministers of the EU Member States meet twice in each six-month period, sitting as the Council of EU Transport Ministers. At these meetings issues of importance to the whole EU are discussed, decisions are taken and legal instruments are adopted.

In addition, at the initiative of the Member State currently holding the EU presidency, the transport ministers may meet informally to discuss matters of fundamental importance.

Officials from the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT) take part in the meetings of a dozen or so working parties in Brussels, which sit throughout the year and prepare for the ministerial meetings.
