Travel made greener

5 reasons why Trainhugger supports sustainable travel & tourism in the UK

  • Travel makes up 1/3rd of the country’s carbon footprint.

  • Road traffic alone makes up 25%.

  • But train travel only accounts for 1%!  It’s one of the most sustainable travel choices you can make.

  • Train travel helps boost a sustainable tourism sector, linking holiday hotspots and popular destinations by rail.

  • Trains are getting greener! Electrifying rail (and making it more energy efficient with innovative smart tech) is all part of the UK’s plan to reach net zero emissions by 2050.
