This year, the train takes centre stage! The European Union has decided to make 2021 the European Year of Rail in order to shine a spotlight on the most eco-friendly, comfortable and safest way to travel. For your trips between Spain and France, Renfe-SNCF in Cooperation thought of everything to turn the journey into an experience.
Neutral carbon footprint by 2050
The most environmentally-friendly way to travel large distances
In an effort to stop climate change, the European Union has set the goal to become carbon neutral by 2050. To achieve it, the members of the European Parliament and Council have signed an agreement to encourage rail travel, since it is the perfect way to travel comfortably
and safely, while at the same time caring for the environment. To this end, the President of the Council has stated that the goal of the Year of Rail is to boost the sector, encouraging professionals and manufacturers to choose rail.
An essential mode of transport
The members of the Council also noted how the train has been, and continues to be, vital for transporting basic goods all over Europe during the pandemic.
Rail connects people, regions and companies throughout Europe. The Year of Rail is a collective initiative that seeks to connect European states not only geographically, but politically and culturally as well.
Renfe-SNCF will thus continue to do its best to provide you with options so you can travel between Spain and France in the most practical and convenient way possible, while causing the least possible impact on the environment.
