Transplantation and transportation: kidney exchange by train in Spain

Donor kidneys for kidney exchange will be travelling by train, in Spain:
Spain’s high-speed AVE rail to transport donated organs

"The country’s tourism minister, Ana Pastor, and health minister, Alfonso Alonso, reached an agreement to allow the free movement of organ transplants on the extensive train network.

The service will initially be used exclusively for crossover kidney transplants from living donors. If that is deemed a success, the service could be extended to other organ donors."
