Bus travel made free in London after 20 drivers died of coronavirus

Bus travel made free in London after 20 drivers died of coronavirus

Share

London’s mayor Sadiq Khan has made all bus travel free and told passengers to only board by the middle doors in a bid to protect bus drivers, after 20 of them died from the coronavirus.

Passengers boarding London buses usually have to enter by the front doors and tap-in using a bank card or travel pass, forcing them to come within inches of drivers. Khan hopes that the new measures, which will come into force on Monday, April 20, will make it easier for drivers and commuters to maintain a safe distance from one another and prevent the further deaths of drivers.

Use only public transport when necessary

London Mayor said: “I would like to remind Londoners that you shouldn’t be travelling by any mode of transport unless it is absolutely necessary, and public transport is only open for critical workers.”

Under current rules, extended by another three weeks on Thursday, British people are barred from using public transport unless they are making an essential journey. The public are also advised to remain two metres away from one another when outside their homes. Public transport use has declined by around 90% in London since the national coronavirus lockdown was implemented.
