Input urged for Transport Committee research on impact of coronavirus

Fleets and employees can have their say on the transport issues they’ve faced during the coronavirus outbreak as part of a Transport Committee inquiry.

The inquiry will begin with aviation and will move on to other sectors such as rail and local transport

MPs will explore the impact felt by the industry, its workers and passengers in a rolling programme of work to monitor the impact of coronavirus on UK transport, sector by sector.

The committee is seeking a range of views to suggest areas where more support is needed.

Chair of the Transport Committee, Huw Merriman MP, said: “Coronavirus has changed our lives and will continue to make itself felt for some time. Aviation, rail, local transport, national infrastructure projects, the travel industry – those who work in transport and those who use it – have all felt the impact of Covid-19.

“As the situation continues to develop, we’re keen to hear of developments and issues across the different transport sectors.  You might work in transport, use local services or fear for services. Perhaps you’ve been forced to change travel plans or are concerned about regular journeys you make. We’re asking you to tell us what the issues are.”

The inquiry will begin with aviation and will move on to other sectors such as rail and local transport.
