Is this the world of the future? You hop on a train, go to your destination, and upon arrival go to the train office in order to rent an electric car which will zoom you around the city. Denmark’s National public train operator, DSB, has reached an agreement with Better Place, an organization that is rolling out a new approach to electric cars. DSB will supply train stations with electric cars that can be rented to passengers. Under the agreement, a passenger while purchasing a train ticket can at the same time arrange to have an electric car waiting for them upon arrival at the trip’s destination.
This is among the first times such an agreement has been forged between train and car companies. It sure makes sense.
