Smart Transport

The way forward is public transport

More than a year after Covid-19 first shut down the country, it continues to disrupt the transport system, with the effect on public transport felt by passengers and operators alike. Initial Government advice to avoid public transport has created an ongoing, and largely unsubstantiated, fear which, unless addressed, will have negative consequences far beyond the pandemic. 

So far, there is no evidence that public transport was, or is, a source of virus transmission and, with appropriate safety measures, the risk of catching Covid on public transport is actually very low.

In fact, joined-up active travel and public transport have a role to play in improving public health and reducing health inequalities, with people who use public transport more likely to meet the UK Government recommendations for physical activity.
