If you zoom in on Europe, where our company will be operating, the share is roughly the same, with 22 percent of greenhouse gas emissions generated by transport.

At Midnight Trains, we leave the greenwashing to others. For us, it’s quite simple: if a business has to invent an impact, it’s going through the wall. We might as well say that we had this conviction firmly rooted in our bodies when we decided to embark on the adventure of night trains in Europe.
