By Switching From Plane To Rail, London-Scotland Travel Market Grows While Emissions Drop

By Nicole Caldwell

Since switching from plane to train service between Central Scotland and London, the London-Scotland travel market has saved approximately 681,064 tons of carbon emissions, according to a new report by Transform Scotland. That number is equivalent to removing all traffic on highly populated M8 highway between Glasgow and Edinburgh (almost 47 miles each way) for two years.
