The fourth direct train service between London St. Pancras and Rotterdam Centraal and Amsterdam Centraal stations has been announced by Eurostar. This high-speed rail service connects the UK and continental Europe. For travel beginning on September 5, passengers can now buy tickets.
Travelers will find it even simpler to prefer the environmental advantages of high-speed rail over air travel since there will be more direct routes connecting these renowned commercials and tourist hubs. The carbon footprint of one flight is equal to up to 13 Eurostar trips, while a Eurostar trip produces up to 93% less CO2 than a flight.
Much greener travel
Up to 3,600 passengers a day, or the equivalent of 18 flights, will be able to travel between London and the Netherlands on Eurostar thanks to the fourth route, which will operate from Monday through Friday.
“The ever-increasing demand for high-speed trains between the Netherlands and the UK indicates that both business and leisure travelers value the convenience and comfort of traveling by Eurostar,” said Els Buzzi, Head of Amsterdam Route at Eurostar. With the fourth service, our clients will have even more options and freedom when organizing their travel, knowing that Eurostar is a more environmentally friendly option for traveling between cities’ centers.
At 6:16 am, the fourth direct train will leave London St. Pancras International Station. It will take under four hours to get to Amsterdam and over three hours to get to Rotterdam.
