Keeping people and goods on the move
Rail systems are a vital part of the global transport network. Demand is growing worldwide as urban areas – and their populations – expand. Whether transporting people or goods, railways need to be reliable, punctual, safe and affordable for all users.
From metro systems and urban lines to high-speed inter-city services, rail is an efficient way of getting people from A to B. In cities that have introduced stringent parking and access restrictions, as part of a policy to cut carbon emissions, there has been a shift in favor of rail travel. Further developments of high-speed networks, particularly in Europe and Asia, are expected to create more demand for long-distance rail journeys.
Rail is the greenest form of land transport for freight. It produces fewer CO² emissions and uses less energy than road or inland waterway transport. It’s relatively lower costs makes it an attractive option for freight customers looking to reduce their environmental impact.
In an increasingly interconnected world, the challenge for the rail sector is providing smarter services. These include more energy-efficient rolling stock and infrastructure, plus real time traffic information throughout the journey so that passengers are aware of travel options in the event of disruption.
