Spotlight Sessions webinars

See how we’re making the network safe to travel on and the changes we’ve made in response to the coronavirus.

Over the past few months we’ve been running our first series of Spotlight Sessions, to highlight different elements of our coronavirus response.

Feedback from customers and our stakeholders has shown us that people’s confidence and comfort in travelling on public transport has been rocked by the pandemic. Our response to the pandemic has needed to be multi-facetted and our sessions bring into focus the work of our colleagues and demonstrate how we’ve ensured the network is clean, safe, reliable and orderly for our customers.
