New links for ski and mountain tourist destinations, more integrated travel solutions with train, bus and plane and ad hoc promotions for families and young people. There Winter Experience 2023 of the passenger hub of Fs Group (made up of Trenitalia, Busitalia, Ferrovie del Sud Est and Fs Treni Turistici Italiani) starts from December 10th and is enriched with new solutions to develop increasingly complete, efficient and sustainable mobility. In total there are 24 thousand national connections per day by train and bus and 13 thousand connections in Europe.

The novelties of the winter season were presented in Milan by Luigi CorradiCEO of Trenitalia. Corradi says: «Trenitalia and all the companies in the passenger hub are investing in latest generation trains and buses to guarantee passengers an even more comfortable and environmentally friendly journey. We are committing over 1 billion euros per year to regional transport and, in the next 3 years, the trains will be almost completely renewed. We have signed a contract worth around 1 billion euros for the supply of 40 new Frecciarossa 1000s and, as part of the Pnrr funds, we are investing in new Intercity trains and carriages, with particular attention to the southern regions”.

Intermodality, sustainability and innovation they are the pillars of the new Winter Experience. The 45 million passengers who chose to travel with the Arrows allowed them to save approximately 1 billion euros in costs for the community in terms of lower environmental and social costs: healthcare costs, damage to the environment, agriculture, properties and biodiversity. A passenger who travels by train every week between Milan and Rome, instead of by plane, reduces the weight of CO2 emissions by 9 tons per year; if he chose the train instead of the car, he would save 4 tons of CO2.

Traveling by train, according to a Bloomberg analysis prepared by McKinsey, guarantees companies better performance on ESG ratings which translates into savings of up to 1 percentage point on the cost of capital. Furthermore, the 47,000 companies that chose to travel with Trenitalia avoided, in 2023, the emission of 100,000 tonnes of CO2 compared to cars.
