Train operator and cycling advocates agree cooperation (Italy)

Italy’s largest train operator, Trenitalia, and the Italian Federation of Friends of the Bicycle (FIAB) have agreed to work together to allow cyclists to travel more easily by rail.

The two organisations have set up a joint working group, which is accompanied by investments by Trenitalia for cyclists travelling on their trains. This includes more space for bicycles in train carriages and the refurbishment of 180 train stations to make them accessible to cyclists.

Through their cooperation, Trenitalia and FIAB are supporting the development of sustainable mobility throughout Italy, and particularly the possibility to combine sustainable transport modes in one journey.
