Reforming public transport after the pandemic

Inquiry

The longer-term implications of the coronavirus pandemic for the UK’s public transport are to be examined by the Transport Committee. From the first weeks of lockdown, the Transport Committee has charted the impact of Covid-19 on the UK’s key transport sectors.  Transport workers, stakeholders, mayors and ministers working in aviation, local transport, freight and maritime described the immediate pressures they faced during an unprecedented period of profound upheaval. This inquiry will take a holistic look at how public transport is changing and the implications for current government strategies including the Williams Rail Review, bus strategy, walking and cycling, taxis and private hire vehicles. 

The deadline for submission is Thursday 24 September 2020.
