The arrival of Covid-19 had a fundamental impact on the public transport system in London. It reduced demand to 15% of the pre-Covid levels, and, tragically, it affected bus drivers particularly badly. This talk provides some insights into those effects, but also considers what the long term effects of Covid will be on the public transport system. Should we have a return to the pre-Covid normal, or could we use this hiatus to create a better, more appropriate and civilised public mobility offer, that could enable people to meet their aspirations and have a higher quality of life? What should such changes be, and how might we achieve them?
