ADVICE FOR EMPLOYERS

The rail industry is following government guidance and doing all we can to ensure the safe and continued running of the railway. We are advising employers to take the necessary steps to not overwhelm the country’s transport network.

 

Encourage people to work from home
With less available space on trains we need to make sure the railway is open for essential workers who cannot get to work another way.

 

Avoid peak times
Help your staff and customers to avoid peak times. By changing your opening hours and staggering start and finish times, you can help ease pressure on the public transport system.

Consider how people travel to your business. Is there a less busy route they can take, can they avoid changing trains, or can they travel at different times?

 

We are also asking employers to support us by encouraging employees who have to travel by train to follow the recommended guidance, in particular the need to wear a face covering. For the latest travel advice for passengers please click here.
