Norway free train route for 18-year-olds
The European Union offers thousands of free train tickets to people under the age of 18 each year. Now Norwegian youth can also participate in the program.
Its purpose is to contribute to cultural exchange across national borders.
– Rail travel across national borders will build unity and friendship, and Norway will be involved from this year. “We are pleased to announce that Norwegian youth are now involved in this effort,” said Wenche Mobreden, director of the BAFTER division for children, youth and families.
The “DiscoverEU” ticket competition is part of the Erasmus + program. In total, the EU distributes 70,000 tickets, of which 760 are reserved for young people in Norway.
– 18-year-olds in Norway have been living with strikes and epidemics for two years now, and Buffett is well aware of how much it has demanded. We hope many 18-year-olds will take advantage of this opportunity, and now that the community is open, Mobråten says.
The first ticket competition will be open from April 7 to 21. The next round will start on October 4, 2022. Participants must be a resident of Norway and must be at least 18 years old when traveling.
The competition includes answering five short multiple choice questions and one guessing question. Those who guess closer will win, and the rest are on the waiting list. You can register alone or with a maximum of four friends. If you live far from a train station, for example in northern Norway, you will also get paid to go to the nearest train station.
