How planners are handling the shift to lower carbon travel

Rail travel is often seen as the sustainable solution, but how viable is it when it comes to cost and reliability?


Trainline’s B2B arm, Trainline Partner Solutions, has recently revealed that British SMBs hope to strengthen their support in 2024 for lower carbon travel by implementing changes to corporate travel policies and budgets. This includes increasing rail usage.

As environmental concerns within the industry grow, transporting delegates by train has been on the rise for the past year and continues to increase for 2024.

In a poll conducted by C&IT, almost 75% of planners said they would travel to events more by train in 2024. Surprisingly, over 25% of event professionals said they’d still look to drive or fly, stating time and efficiency as their reasons for taking top priority.
