Public transport still too risky for travellers

Public transport still ‘too risky’ for travellers

Business travellers and commuters in the United Kingdom continue to steer clear of public transport, preferring to drive rather than travel by bus or train, new data from Transport Focus shows. Click here to read the full story.

Having tracked transport usage over the past four weeks, the independent UK watchdog says survey results show public transport has remained consistently low.

Before the outbreak, 43% nationally used public transport at least a few times a month, while 80% used the car.

But just 2% of respondents said they had used a bus in the past week, which has remained unchanged since Transport Focus began its weekly survey.

In terms of trains and the London Underground, usage has again remained unchanged over the period, with only 1% of respondents saying they had travelled on either.

More than a third (36%) of respondents said they were avoiding public transport on Government advice, unchanged from the previous week.

Two out of five respondents (39%) said they would not use public transport for any reason until they felt completely safe.

A consistent six out of 10 (60%) said they will more likely to drive in the future.
