Studies show that trains are one of the most environmentally friendly modes of transport.

Based on forecasted traffic volumes, the
Etihad Rail network will reduce
greenhouse gases by more than 2.2
million tonnes annually – the equivalent
of removing 375,000 vehicles off the
roads or planting 52 million trees
A single freight train can carry the load
of up to 300 trucks, thus reducing road
congestion and accidents
One fully loaded train produces 70-80% less CO2 emissions than
the equivalent trucks required
