Train Renaissance

Companies elevate the train experience as more people opt-in for ground travel

Trend - Special features are introduced to the train experience as consumers exhibit a preference for traveling by ground. Whether that be for reasons of affordability or sustainability, these features enhance the experience through luxury add-ons or tweaks to efficiency.

Insight - Consumers, especially Millenials and Gen Zers, are conscious about their carbon footprint and many have made it their mission to minimizing their impact on the planet. As individuals in these global generations place emphasis on travel as a way of experiencing and gaining knowledge about different cultures, they look for ways to get the most out of their time abroad, while also being mindful of the environment. As a result, Millenials and Gen Zers tend to pay more attention to slow travel options.
Workshop Question - How might your company help consumers reduce their carbon footprint?
