Transport Focus

1 min read

Passengers urgently need clear information from Government and operators.

Commenting in advance of the changes to travel on Monday 15 June, Anthony Smith, chief executive of the independent watchdog Transport Focus, said: 
“While many people will be thinking about a trip to the shops, public transport must be kept clear for essential workers and those that have no other option to get to work. 

“Passengers urgently need clear information from Government and operators in advance as to whether face coverings will need to be worn at stations and bus stops as well as onboard trains and buses, or if they will be turned away if they aren’t wearing one.”
