London’s businesses should continue to allow staff to work from home where possible despite travel restrictions being eased, Transport for London (TfL) has said.
Employers can “play a part in controlling the coronavirus” by reducing the number of people who need to commute, the transport body added.
Firms have also been asked to limit the number of deliveries and servicing trips – or ensure they are carried out during off-peak periods – to cut congestion.
Around 75% of Tube services and 85% of bus services are currently running but TfL has warned even when frequencies return to normal, the number of passengers who can travel “safely” would be “constrained to around 13%-15%”.
London’s transport commissioner, Mike Brown, said the number of services running were being increased “as quickly as possible… but a huge transport challenge remains”.
“We and London’s businesses need to work closely together, as we always do, to ensure that their employees can get around safely,” he said.
