Parliament Week 2020: Transport Committee talks to employers

4 November 2020

To coincide with Parliament Week, the Transport Committee is meeting with employers to hear what they need from a public transport system in flux from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

UK Parliament Week runs from 1-7 November. Even with the challenges of 2020, more than 8000 organisations are getting involved in a range of activities across the country, with nearly 950,000 people taking part.

The Transport Committee has been considering the implications of coronavirus for different transport sectors, taking evidence from transport workers, stakeholders, mayors and ministers. In June 2020, the committee published its report on the impact of coronavirus on the aviation sector.

The Committee recently opened an inquiry into the longer-term implications of the coronavirus pandemic for the UK’s public transport system and how this will impact the Government’s approach to public transport. This private engagement event with employers will explore what businesses need from the public transport system now and in the long-term.

The following organisations will attend the roundtable event on Wednesday 4 November:

  • BASF;
  • BBC;
  • Confederation of British Industry;
  • IBM;
  • KPMG;
  • Network Rail;
  • Post Office;
  • Public and Commercial Services Union; and
  • the engineering and design consultancy firm, WSP.
