Trains produce about three times less CO2 emissions per passenger kilometre than passenger cars and eight times less than air travel . Nearly a third of EU transport funds are spent on railways . 

Ships are a clean form of transport and produce about the same amount of CO2 per passenger kilometre as trains do . However , only 2 percent of EU funds are spent on ports . A further one percent is spent on inland waterways .
