  • Rail has the highest fuel efficiency of any mode of transportation.
  • If most European freight continues to be transported by truck, greenhouse gas emissions will increase by more than 40 per cent from 2000 to 2015. However, if only 40% of total freight was carried by rail instead, there would be no increase in emissions.
  • While a train can transport 50,000 passengers per hour (pph) using a three to five metre wide strip of land, only 9,000 pph can be transported by buses, and only 2,000 pph can be transported by cars.
  • Bombardier designed the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic torch.
  • Joseph Armand Bombardier, the company's founder, invented the snowmobile.
