Independent watchdog comment on new government coronavirus safer travel guidance
Commenting on the new government transport guidance, Anthony Smith, chief executive of the independent watchdog Transport Focus, said:
“Many passengers will welcome the advice to wear a face coverings. In Transport Focus's latest survey over half of people say they wouldn’t be happy using public transport unless passengers are required to wear face masks.
“It’s important that the transport industry now builds on this guidance so passengers using buses, trains and trams are clear what to expect from their operator as well as what’s expected of them.”
