Reviving Traveling by Train

Record numbers of people are embracing trains as a form of transport. With train travel set to be one of the biggest trends for 2030. From greener mobility to extra comfort, we look at why more people are choosing to travel by train.

For example, the Austrian ÖBB, Europe’s largest international rail company, had a 10% growth in 2018 over major lines like Rome to Munich and Vienna to Zurich.

With rail transport producing up to 91% less CO2 emissions than flights, it’s about time we embraced the environmental benefits of train travel.

Train rides are also more comfortable than planes. The seats are usually roomier, plus there’s no turbulence to rock your luggage – or your stomach!

Train travel inspires nostalgia for a bygone era and sparks the joy and romance of travel. Many people argue that train travel takes longer than flights, but a train ride is often the start of a holiday.

So why don’t we enjoy the ride and re-discover the pleasure of train travelling?

Grab your mobile, open your audio recorder and collect the sounds of the journey – it can be the whistling of the train, the noise of a crowded train station, the speaker announcing the next stop, the train running on the rail, you name it. Be creative!
