Rail travel 'is a low-carbon alternative'



Rail travel 'is a low-carbon alternative'
Choosing to travel across Europe by rail may be a good option for eco-conscious holidaymakers, an industry expert has suggested.

According to a spokeswoman for STA Travel, travelling around Europe on an InterRail pass is one of the "most popular ways" to explore the continent and is a "fantastic way to travel".

She added that there are a number of ways travellers can choose to embark on their rail journey, such as opting to focus on a single country or picking a Global pass to conveniently visit several different international destinations.

"Travelling by rail allows you to enjoy the freedom of totally flexible green travel around up to 30 countries in Europe," she said.

In related low-carbon transport news, last weekend, the California High-Speed Rail Authority Board approved a feasibility study for a 700-mile electric high-speed train system in the US state that intends to operate emissions-free.

According to Carbon Free, the system may be based on the TGV high-speed train system in France.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18468857-ADNFCR
