Traveling by train is one of the most climate-friendly travel options. After 18 years, all locomotives on the rails in all of Bavaria must be climate neutral. The exact way to get there is still not entirely clear.

According to government plans, local rail passenger transport in Bavaria will be climate neutral by 2040. So far, however, the state government has no concept of how to achieve this. There are “currently too unclear” statements from the federal side, according to a letter from the transport ministry at the request of the FDP in the Bavarian state parliament. “The concept depends on a large number of parameters, which are mainly the responsibility of the federal government,” said the ministry responsible for creating the concept in Bavaria.
