Following the much-anticipated announcement of the Prime Minister’s roadmap out of another lockdown, this 40-minute panel session will feature the experts and authorities on commuters in the Capital. They draw on new plans to inform you on what’s been happening in London and what we can expect throughout each of the phases as our great city recovers.

It’s easy to say you want to continue working from home when you’re sitting in a home office but if you’re in a shared house, crowded around a kitchen table…you’re much more likely to want to go back in.

On the eve of the third lockdown, usage numbers peaked at 50% of pre-pandemic levels, showing a clear desire to travel and confidence in the cleanliness of the network from its users.

77% of our surveyed readers can’t wait to let off a bit of steam! Whether that’s going to a restaurant or a pub, or to the theatre. There is a huge pent-up demand.

There’s a myth, especially among those of us who work in media, that everybody is at home. Global’s tracker shows 35% of those that live and work in London are going to work all the time.

The Same but Different (episode one)

  • Host
    • Shelagh Fogarty (presenter and journalist, LBC)
  • Panellists
    • Ted Young (Editor, Metro)
    • Ollie Deane (Director of Commercial Outdoor and DAX, Global)
    • Brian Woodhead (Director of Customer Service, TfL)
  • First broadcast 26 November 2020

Our debut webinar focused on our response to the coronavirus pandemic. Together with Global and Metro, we discussed the facts and realities of clearing the network during the crisis, keeping critical workers on the move safely and our plans to steadily reopen London and support its sustainable recovery.

As a critical public service, the Tube is essential to the success of London, whether it’s helping key workers make their journeys or supporting millions of passengers daily to carry out their essential journeys and personal business. πŸš‡ 🏒 πŸ₯

During the crisis we reacted decisively and adapted the way we operate to meet the challenge of continuing to make the network available to key workers, making the network safe and communicate the changes to customers. We continue to provide a service that’s safe and reliable – now our focus will be in supporting London’s recovery. πŸ’ͺ
