Hey Rainbow Warriors! 🌈

June is in full swing, and you know what that means—it's Pride Month!

What better way to celebrate love, acceptance, and fabulousness than by hopping on a train and rolling into a city overflowing with Pride festivities? Here at Trainsplit, we're all about inclusivity and epic journeys, and let's face it, carpooling with Aunt Mildred and Uncle Ted can feel a tad…beige. ‍♀️‍♂️

Why Trains are Your Pride Parade Chariot:

  1. Stress-Free: Many Pride events are just a hop, skip, and a train ride away from major stations.

  2. Comfort: No traffic jams, no scrambling for parking. Just kick back, relax, and maybe even bust a move to some Pride playlists!

  3. Eco-Friendly: Train travel is a greener way to celebrate, leaving a smaller carbon footprint and a bigger smile on Mother Earth's face.

  4. Meet Fellow Fierce Folks: Chances are, you'll share your train ride with other Pride enthusiasts, sparking conversations and creating connections even before the festivities begin!

  5. Unleash Your Inner Showstopper: Who needs a designated driver when you've got a train carriage as your runway? Strike a pose, wear your most dazzling outfit, and let your Pride flag fly high! ✨
