- 1 billion tourists are travelling across the world each year
- Aviation is the single largest contributor to greenhouse gases
- One transatlantic return flight emits as much carbon dioxide as an average car does in one year
- Buses have 5 times less CO2 emissions per passenger per kilometre than a plane on the same route
Train journeys are an excellent, environmentally preferred alternative for middle distance and longer journeys. Trains pollute significantly less than planes and provide a great way of seeing the countryside. Most major cities in Australia and abroad provide an extensive rail network and offer tourists an affordable and green travel option which is hassle free and results in less global warming pollution.
A train journey provides a safe and comfortable form of transport, many have sleeping options, and you can travel in any sort of weather conditions. A rail incorporated holiday is a positive step in reducing your carbon emissions.
