Encourage use of Public Transport

We need to start getting people back on public transport. While there may be a slightly higher risk of catching Covid, travel by public transport particularly train is much safer and more environmentally friendly than travelling by private car. The roads are getting very busy as people are now travelling again but trains are still very quiet. Many people still believe there is a high risk of catching COVID on a train or a bus but if people take appropriate precautions and behave sensibly it should be safe.

Why the contribution is important

If we continue to discourage the use of public transport more people are going to be killed and injured on the roads and pollution will return to even higher levels than before lockdown started.

    It's rubbish that public transport causes less pollution than cars. Cars are extremely clean nowadays. But people should not be discouraged from behaving as normally as possible and going back onto trains and buses.
