From weekend getaways in the mountains to city excursions, we are the European champions of short-distance train travel. But what about international trips? Too expensive, too complicated, too uncomfortable – or so the most common preconceptions go.
The SimpleTrain project proves otherwise: The young team shows how simple and pleasant sustainable railway travel can be – even for more far-flung destinations. And in doing so, it is driving forward the trend towards environmentally conscious mobility.
Supported by the Migros Pioneer Fund, SimpleTrain is creating a central platform providing train travel tips, as well as ideas and suggestions for destinations. The project's main feature, however, is its booking service, which provides travellers with a cheap and uncomplicated way of purchasing train tickets, including for all international connections. SimpleTrain makes switching to environmentally friendly travel easy.
