Government guidance fails to answer the fundamental question on public transport

Jim McMahon MP, Labour’s Shadow Transport Secretary, commenting on the Government guidance on using public transport said “This guidance fails to answer the fundamental question, how do you stop the transport network being overwhelmed when it’s currently running at a fraction of capacity?

“The scenes we saw on public transport services yesterday were unsurprising when you order a return to work with 12 hours’ notice with no official guidance on how workers can keep safe and fail to put in place suitable measures to deal with demand. That was irresponsible and wrong.”
