Reading: Promoting train-travels
During the summer holidays, Germans had the chance to travel around the country for only 9 euros a month. This ticket gave them unlimited travel on regional trains, trams and buses. It is estimated that about 1.8 million tons of CO2 emissions have been saved and it encouraged people to leave their cars at home. The experiment lasted 3 months, from June to August. 52 million tickets were sold and many of the tickets were bought by people who didn't usually use public transport. Many Germans say it's worth thinking about continuing the experiment, adding that subsidising public transport would encourage people to leave their cars at home.
Now, Spain is following suit and offering free travel on commuter and mid-distance regional trains. This scheme will be running until the end of 2022 and the main aim is to help commuters deal with rising prices. However, it will also benefit people travelling for leisure. They can use it for a specific destination or zone in the case of cities and pay a deposit which depends on the type of train. If they then travel on this line at least 16 times by the end of the year, they will obtain a refund. Barcelona has also reduced its metro fares by up to 50% for the same period.
This summer, if people bought a 9-euro ticket in Germany, they could get ________ on public transport. This helped to reduce ________ and meant that many people stopped using their ________. Spain is introducing a similar scheme to help regular travellers cope with ________. Users will pay a variable deposit, depending on their journey and will get their money back if they make over ________ journeys.
