Summary/Abstract: This article provides a multi-criteria evaluation of two national routes in choosing a security rail corridor in Romania. Using socio-economic indicators, there are highlighted the features of the policy options chosen for the selected corridor. In the broader context of the importance granted to accessibility by the European space planning policies, comparing the efficiency of European and national transportation routes and corridors constitutes an issue of particular relevance for Romania. In order to resolve it, this paper proposes a methodology based on potential accessibility, determined by the total population served and the efficiency of the path. Both approaches were applied to internal and European routes.
