Travel by train or bus/coach is significantly more environmentally friendly in terms of carbon emissions. For a journey from London to Edinburgh, for example, a passenger travelling by plane would be responsible for 96.4 kilogrammes of carbon dioxide and a car passenger 71 kilogrammes, while a train passenger would lead to just 11.9 kilogrammes and a coach user only 9.2 kilogrammes.
