Eco benefits of rail travel
- Results so far indicate that trains are almost always less damaging to the environment than planes and cars.
- A train uses up to 70% less energy and causes up to 85% less air pollution when compared to a jet aircraft.
- Trains use 17 times less fuel to travel the same distance compared to an aircraft and 5 times less fuel than a car per passenger km.
- So to conclude if a party of 30 travels with exporail, you will be using 30 times less fuel than if you hired 6 taxis.
