New signs in London are reminding people about social distancing when waiting at bus stops.

The signage and posters have been installed by Transport for London (TfL) at 161 bus stops and shelters across 27 locations. Posters will also appear on 73 priority bus routes.

TfL has also taken steps to ensure people are safe and distanced on buses. Passengers are now entering and leaving buses through the middle doors.

The new bus stop posters and bollard signs are coloured bright yellow and instruct the public to keep distance from each other. The poster reads: “Please keep your distance. For your safety and the safety of our staff.”

Transport for London has also issued small, round floor markers also advising people waiting at the bus stop to socially distance.

According to the latest figures from TfL, 23 bus drivers and workers have died in London after testing positive for coronavirus.

On Friday 24 April, TfL announced that it will furlough 7,000 transport workers, a quarter of its workforce. There has been a 95% drop in passengers across TfL’s network, with an 85% reduction on buses. This has seen TfL experience a 90% drop in daily revenue. Last year it earned £4.9 billion from fares, just under half its income.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has warned that TfL could out of cash and could struggle to pay wages unless the UK government steps in.
