As governments across Europe lift the travel restriction measures taken this spring to control the spread of COVID-19, public transport (PT) is slowly returning to normality and regaining its passengers.
However, the “new normality” is very different from the reality we once knew and changes in health safety measures happen sometimes on a weekly basis. These safety rules can also be quite different from country to country, which can cause confusion to passengers and even to national passenger organisations.
Therefore, EPF has committed to research the differences in health safety measures for passengers in Public Transport in Europe, focusing on six EU countries: Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. The update is a result of the EPF research conducted over the last month (end May-2020 to end June-2020).
