The effect the Covid-19 pandemic has had on the UK’s transport system has been immediate and drastic.

Car use dropped significantly when lockdown was announced in March, but has since rebounded – although not to pre-pandemic levels – while the number of people using public transport fell through the floor and has remained low.

Department for Transport statistics show that for the last week in June, the number of train passengers was just 14% of those in the same period last year, London Underground users dropped 85%, with buses seeing a 66% fall.
