About us

What is Go2Rail?

Go2RAIL is a not-for-profit organization that aims at promoting trains as a fun, shared, and affordable travel mode choice. Coherently with our aim of making train tickets more affordable, we commit ourselves, through the Go2RAIL statute, to reinvest the yearly generated profit in our business to lower their prices even more.
As a team of friends who travelled across Europe and the world to complete our studies, we are aware that we have already taken too many flights. This is something that we want to change and Go2RAIL is how we want to do it!
