Deutsche Bahn’s Idea Train promises to be the most relaxing train ever. The morning commute could become a pleasure rather than a chore if Deutsche Bahn’s vision for rail travel becomes reality, with rigid traditional seating making way for exercise equipment and privacy pods.
Unveiled last week, the Idea Train concept from Deutsche Bahn has been developed by the German company to revolutionise rail travel by enabling passengers to make the most of their journey – a period of time that many regard as wasted time. As reported by the German website Süddeutsche Zeitung, Deutsche Bahn’s futuristic trains will be fitted out with everything that an active person needs – with fitness studios that feature fitness studios, exercise bikes and even professionally-trained coaches.
You can even cycle to work on the train with Deutsche Bahn’s Idea Train. While for travellers looking to catch up with work before and after the office, there will be segregated areas that offer noise-cancelling chairs, built-in tablet stands that work well for business meetings and – for those who work better alone – also available are segregated areas that give complete peace and quiet.
