French railway company SNCF has recently installed an in-station daycare center for busy, commuting parents who are always finding themselves pressed for time and rushing. The in-station daycare center is ideal for parents with young children who are looking to cut back on time spent traveling before and after work. Additionally, the in-station daycare center is perfect for parents wishing to spend more time with their children, as parents will only be away from children while commuting on the train and throughout the work day.

The in-station daycare center is an effective way to also save money on gas. While only one in-station daycare is currently up and running, the SNCF is hoping to launch two additional childcare centers that will also be conveniently located inside train stations. This is one of the original concepts I have come across in a long time.
