The UIC (International Union of Railways) has published a state-of-the-art document with examples of scientific evidence, case studies and mathematical models that shows that clusters of Covid-19 are rare on public transport and among train staff, and that the probability of becoming infected on public transport is relatively low.

A separate chapter focuses on the risk perception of Covid-19 on public transport and shows that, according to recent surveys, members of the general public have said that they would be eager to return if mitigation measures are put in place.
