London TravelWatch responds to Prime Minister's announcement on easing travel restrictions

31 July 2020 Responding to the Prime Minister’s announcement this morning, London TravelWatch Director, Emma Gibson commented: ‘As the economy continues to reopen it is good to see the Prime Minister make it clear that people can return to public transport from this weekend. We know that there is some spare capacity on public transport outside the rush hour in and around London so this makes sense although more work needs to be done to reassure passengers that our trains buses and Tube services are safe to use. Although businesses can now decide in consultation with staff whether they should return to offices it is clear that a large number of people will have to continue working at home and offices will have to stagger their working times so as not to overwhelm public transport during rush hour.’ View All News
