The rail industry is following government guidance and taking steps to ensure the safe and continued running of the railway. We are advising employers to take necessary steps to help people travel safely.

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.
