unstar this property answer text <p>The Department for Transport has made an estimate of the percentage change in real terms of the average financial cost to the individual of travelling by train and aircraft on journeys made in the UK. For travel by train, the Department publishes statistics on travel costs, based on data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS), in the Transport Statistics Great Britain compendium. This is available from Table TSGB1308 at the link below:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/transport-expenditure-tsgb13" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/transport-expenditure-tsgb13</a>.</p><p> </p><p>The costs of travelling by air within the UK are not available from ONS data. However, DfT estimates are available based on fare data collected from the Civil Aviation Authority passenger survey from 2000. The real cost of the average UK one-way air fare, including taxes and charges, covering domestic flights from 2010 to 2017 decreased by 22%. From 2015 to 2017 the real cost decreased by 7%.</p><p> </p><p>The Department has not recently made a comparative assessment of the environmental costs of travelling by train and aircraft on journeys in the UK.</p>

unstar this property answer text <p>In February 2018 the Government challenged the rail industry to produce a vision for how all diesel-only trains could be removed from the rail network by 2040. In response, an industry taskforce, led by Malcom Brown, has identified hydrogen alongside electrification and battery power as technologies that can be used to decarbonise rail.</p><p> </p><p>The Department is working to accelerate the development of new low-carbon technologies so that they can be deployed on the network as soon as possible. We are currently funding a project that will see the UK's first operating hydrogen train tested on Network Rail’s mainline infrastructure.</p><p> </p><p>We are working with Network Rail to develop a decarbonisation strategy that will identify appropriate decarbonisation technologies, including hydrogen, for each part of our rail network. This strategy will ensure that rail makes its contribution to achieving the Government’s target of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.</p><p> </p>
