Transport for London (TfL) has installed digital signage around London reminding people about social distancing when waiting at bus stops.
The signage and posters have been installed by Transport for London (TfL) at 161 bus stops and shelters across 27 locations. Posters will also appear on 73 priority bus routes.
TfL has also taken steps to ensure people are socially distanced on buses. Passengers are now entering and leaving buses through the middle and back doors.
The new bus stop posters and bollard signs are coloured bright yellow and instruct the public to keep distance from each other. The poster reads: “Please keep your distance. For your safety and the safety of our staff.”
Transport for London is also using floor markers to advise people waiting at bus stops to socially distance.
This initiative follows the demise of 23 bus drivers and workers who died across the capital after testing positive for coronavirus.
Transport for London has announced that it will furlough 7,000 transport workers, a quarter of its workforce.
There has been a huge drop in passenger travel across London’s bus network resulting in a massive drop in daily revenue.
