Sweden explores use of night trains to European cities

The Swedish Transport Administration is exploring the possibility of using night trains to travel to European cities.

Government will this week ask the administration to look into whether night trains to cities in Europe could be a reality.

Its findings, together with the findings by the government agency, Traffic Analysis, will be presented on  April 30, 2020.

Head of national planning at the administration, Lennart Kalander, said they were looking into the matter and establish which routes will be available and interesting.

“The Swedish Transport Administration will look at the available night trains in the rest of Europe and determine what routes are interesting,” he was quoted as saying.

The night trains were popular in the 20th century, but a boom in low-cost airlines has bitten hard into their business.
