How much energy is saved when I choose the train?

Get On The Right Track

The Missouri Transit Association adds that one full rail car can replace between 75-125 automobiles. Most large rail companies, such as Eurail and Via Rail (Canada), offer special deals for those who travel frequently or who want to visit several neighbouring countries.
