About the session

Trains are the backbone of efficient and sustainable transportation systems, offering a high-capacity, low-emission alternative to cars and airplanes. With growing concerns about climate change and air pollution, NMBS-SNCB provides a crucial solution for reducing carbon emissions and promoting cleaner air.

Our offer plays a vital role in connecting communities, businesses, and economies, facilitating commerce, tourism, and social interaction on both local and regional scales. Embracing trains as a cornerstone of future mobility requires collaboration between governments, businesses, and communities to prioritize sustainable transportation solutions and invest in the necessary infrastructure and technologies.
