Our vision on mobility
We all like to travel and to travel more often. Nowadays, you can fly to any major city in Europe for near to nothing. But the train is also becoming more popular. More and more people want the train to compete with air travel within Europe. NS wants to grow with the demand. Travelling by train is clean, comfortable, easy and often even faster than flying. A good sustainable alternative to flying!

How we want to further improve international rail travel
Everyone by train to Paris
Every year, 3 million people travel from the Netherlands to Paris. More than a quarter choose Thalys, the second most popular means of transport.
Ambitions to and from Germany
With 2.5 million passengers, ICE International and Intercity Berlin are an indispensable link for business traffic between the Netherlands and Germany.
Gateway to London
Travellers can now travel from London to Amsterdam in little over 3.5 hours. More comfortable, more sustainable and also faster than flying.
Give international train journeys wings
The train should be the first choice for shorter international journeys. That is better for the environment and better for the economy.
How trains save a million tonnes of CO2
At the moment, air travel is the most popular choice for most European destinations. Also for relatively short distances.
