    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    It remains to be seen how long it lasts.......... anyway there has been a steady move towards online shopping for sometime now, covid has just speeded it up.

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    It's the same everywhere and it looks that's how it's going to be for the foreseeable........ I noticed my local barbers being refitted to comply with social distancing and it's going to be a queue to get in most shops....... not too bad in the sunshine but it's not going to be much fun...

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    No I'm working mostly from home and I was before the virus............. different people have different circumstances and I think a lot of people are going to be uneasy about using public transport for sometime to come.

    I think it's you that needs to get a grip, it's not about trying to be macho. Some people have very good reason to be unwilling to return to work including footballer Troy Deeney.

    I'm no expert but I think you could well be right about a second wave if people don't act responsibly, I know it's a pain to say the least but the situation is what it is and we're by no means out of the woods yet.

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    Obviously we need to get the economy moving again, but it seems like social distancing is going to be with us for the foreseeable future.

    I think the virus or the possibility of passing it onto family members is likely to be of greater concern.

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    Yes although at the moment I'd only make car journeys that are essential, any breakdown or accident and others are put at risk. Of course there aren't many options of places to go anyway, I wouldn't visit anybodys house and pubs, restaurants etc are closed.

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    I can think of a few train journeys I'd like to make but I haven't, each to their own decision on the matter.

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    I think it's up to each individual to decide whether their journey is essential, my partner and I have a car although she gets priority. Normally I would use public transport regularly although I've stayed off it for the last couple of months.

    People are going to have to start using their own common sense, basically don't use public transport unless your journey is essential.

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    I assume the exclusive use bit applies to peak hours, obviously some people have to use public transport for shopping, medical appointments etc. I think the message is basically don't use public transport unless you have to, I know it goes against everything that we've been told in the past but...

    Nobody could have possibly forseen the current situation.

    Nobody is saying it will be a bundle of laughs.......... but it's that or risk another wave of covid.

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    What's unbelievable about it? With greatly reduced capacity for the foreseeable future why shouldn't key workers have priority? Or do you want empty supermarket shelves?

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    Why is it utterly pointless? Clearly people won't be able to double up when every bay is full.

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    I am well aware of the need to get the economy going.........my point was about somebody criticising a train operator for closing seats off for social distancing and suggesting people sit in the closed off seats as some sort of act of defiance.

    You couldn't be more wrong......... I haven't enjoyed it at all, I just despair at your flippant attitude.

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    Seriously...... it's people with your attitude that will cause another wave of Covid-19.

    Long term social distancing: Impact on public life & public transport?

    You could try using a bit of common sense like most other people do....... and there is no effort to encourage people onto public transport, quite the opposite in fact........ social distancing....... surely it's self explanatory?
