South Essex train operator c2c is providing commuters with a “travel with confidence” checklist as more people are expected to resume travelling by rail.
The helpful five-point guide is intended to reassure customers who have not travelled in the past six months by providing simple steps that they can take to be confident about their commute:
c2c has signed up to National Rail’s UK-wide “Travel Safe Pledge”. This means we are maximising the space available by running every train as at least 8-carriages, and increasing cleaning levels at our trains and stations. We are also providing more information on which trains are busiest and what times are comparatively quiet, with information updated weekly at: www.c2c-online.co.uk
c2c Managing Director Julian Drury said: “We are seeing a slow but steady increase in passenger numbers, and we know the return of schools means more parents will resume commuting. Our helpful checklist is intended to help people who haven’t travelled recently to be confident about their commute, and be reassured about the steps c2c has taken.”
c2c has also published a code of conduct aimed for school pupils travelling by train and their parents, available at: www.c2c-online.co.uk
