Govia Thameslink Railway - Getting ready for the new world of travel

Published: 29 Jun 2020

GTR shares its top tips for those who need to head back onto the trains

As people across the country begin to see the gradual ease to lockdown, the prospect of taking on the ‘new world commute’ for those who must travel by train, may seem a little daunting. While the advice is clear that people should still consider whether their journey is necessary and wear a face covering if travelling, inevitably many will be nervous about the prospect of heading onto public transport in the future.

To help ease customer concerns, the key workers from Southern, Thameslink and Great Northern (operated by Govia Thameslink Railway – GTR) have come together to create a short video. Taking passengers behind the scenes, the video helps reassure them of the work being done and demonstrate the small things we can all do to stay safe. 

In addition, the team at GTR have offered their Top Ten Tips for travelling in the new world, from using your elbow to open the door to avoiding eating or drinking on the train [see attached infographic at the bottom of this release in the related content section]. 

Steve White, Chief Operating Officer at GTR says; “Throughout the Coronavirus lockdown, the teams at Southern, Thameslink and Great Northern have been working solidly to keep key workers moving and now, as restrictions ease, they are again working effortlessly to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all passengers. While we are doing our bit, we ask all our passengers to consider the safety of others and follow our top ten tips and where possible stagger their journey as much as possible to help everyone stay safe.”

The teams at Southern, Great Northern and Thameslink hope that their top tips will reassure customers and help keep everyone safe.
