Wednesday, 23 March 2022 09:55

The green revolution of Trenitalia continues with new generation and hybrid trains and enhanced passengers services, as the Italian state railways gears up for a return to its summer schedule, and to an expected upswing in holiday traffic and international arrivals.


Sabrina De Filippis"We are looking optimistically at a third consecutive successful summer season – said director of regional business management Sabrina De Filippis – as we continue to expand our network of destinations, add exciting new services and introducing new generation rolling stock.”

 

The new trains put the emphasis on green travel

The regional fleet continues to grow, and already has over 50% of new generation trains with a wide range of passenger comforts and facilities, and a special emphasis on green travel.

“Working with bus companies we have extended our services to areas that can only be reached by road.  Now our new trains have onboard bike stations with secure racks, further extending our reach by making it possible for passengers to continue their train+bus journey on bicycles.” 

Blues trains cut emissions and noise levels  

With Trenitalia’s regional fleet set for an 80% renewal over the next four years, June 2022 will see the arrival of the first of the 110 new Blues trains. With a green footprint that allows a 50% reduction in fuel consumption, the Blues represents a generational leap. With triple diesel, electric and battery power, the trains run on diesel motors on non-electrified lines, on electric motors on electrified lines, and on batteries for the first and last mile on non-electrified lines, and during stops in stations. Thus avoiding the use of fuels, eliminating emissions, and greatly reducing noise levels in urban areas.
