Number of passengers using the London Underground Transport increases

157

The number of passengers using the London Underground Transport this morning increased by 8.7% compared with the same period last week, after Prime Minister Boris Johnson encouraged people to return to work.

The Manager of London’s Waterloo station said that train services at the station rose to 45% of normal capacity on Monday after running at 25% during the earlier stages of the Coronavirus lock down.

Services were expected to rise again to 82% of capacity from next Monday, he said.

The marked increases come as people in England are now being encouraged to return to their workplaces if they cannot work from home.
