Latest time to Reserve Green Seats?

Just wondering if I was to buy a green pass, if I would be able to board the green cars in "October" by just walking up to the station without reserving days in advance. Just trying to figure out which pass to get and I would like to get the green pass but I would prefer to get the tickets and reserve them within an hour or so of the train departing. Thanks for any help.

Hi there,

That should be no problem at all. Green Seats are not traveled a lot and there's nearly always place. Worst case, you get to wait for the next train :)

Hope this helps,
Daniel

Ok, thanks a lot :) So trains typically run every hour or so?

Generally at least one every 30 minutes. Though this depends on the route and time of travel.
