Online survey on transport after lockdown offers chance to win £50

The people in the West Midlands stand a chance to win £50 by filling an online survey which helps to shape public transport after lockdown.

Through the survey, people can say how they think their daily commute will change as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The deadline for the survey will be 9am on May 11. Those who complete it by then can enter a prize draw and could win one of three £50 Amazon vouchers.

Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) has said that the survey results will not only help plan services but also shape public information campaigns to ensure physical distancing for the protection of staff and passengers.

Laura Shoaf, managing director for TfWM, said: “Nothing will be the same after the Covid-19 pandemic and that includes our public transport network.”

“There will be new commuting patterns and strict rules on physical distancing to observe. But we will still need bus, train and tram services to get people to work or the shops, visit loved ones and attend appointments efficiently and safely.”

The TfWM and partners, including train, tram and bus operators, are drawing up plans for services after the lockdown.
