New Zealand’s trains are taking increasing numbers of people and freight. Train travel makes our roads safer and less congested and supports sustainability goals too.

Rail safety matters a great deal. In some cities, catching a train to school or work is routine and many people come across level crossings where car drivers and the rest of us must stop and wait for a train to pass.
