It depends if its actually going to be enforced I think. As I'm still seeing a few busy buses with people sat directly behind someone else on every single row of seats and not seen any sort of display being used. They just have advisory notices onboard.Well I’m currently being furloughed but I know my company has introduced social distancing on buses. I think a single deck vehicle will now take up to 10/11 passengers. When the bus is at its capacity, the driver then changes the blind to display the text the bus is now full due to social distancing.
How will this work? Will the drivers job be even harder than before? The driver will have to sail past lots of people , resulting in lots of complaints.
I’d imagine bus drivers will face lots of confrontation with this and will be even more difficult when the school kids start going back.
And depends how long term a measure it is and whether this is still in place in September (which is still over 3 months away) surely. As the vast majority of school kids won't be going back till September i'd expect. In addition some school buses have a full seating load and standing passengers such as the 876 that I saw on Princes Way in Solihull a few months back, so they'd need more buses surely.
