Etihad Rail Will Offer Door-To-Door Service To Its Passengers

After Emirates gives its customers a high-end, comfortable experience, Etihad doesn’t want to be left behind. Etihad Rail, similar to Emirates Airways, is launching a ‘door-to-door’ service to give that premium experience to its customers. And when we say door-to-door isn’t doesn’t mean that a luxury fleet would be standing outside the station. The idealogy behind this initiative is explained below. Read to know the details.

Get An Easy Access Of Travel Mode To Your Home Or Workspace

Etihad Rail’s motive is to drop its customer at whatever destination it wishes to reach after its train journey. It can vary from any tourist spot, home or workspace. For that those modes of public transport will be available, situated right outside the station. This will demand a high level of integration among Etihad rail and other modes of transportation. Local authorities would be a part of this picture to help lay the successful framework. The mobility resources that will ensure delivering every passenger to the desired destination can be trams, shared vehicles, car rentals, park-and-ride, and buses.
