Employer advice:


• If many of your employees come to work by public transport, you may need to consider staggering your staff start and finish times and opening hours, to help reduce the pressure during peak travel times across London (05:45–08:15 and 16:00–17:30)

• In line with Government advice, those who can work from home, such as administrative and head office staff, should continue to do so

• Where possible, please encourage and support your employees to walk or cycle, even for only part of their journey. This will help make space for those who have no alternative but to use public transport

• To enable your staff to walk, run and cycle, please consider the facilities you offer, including lockers, cycle storage and showers

• If your employees are using public transport, they must use a face covering, and are advised to do so in taxis and private hire vehicles. They should also be encouraged to carry hand sanitiser and wash their hands before and after they travel We are continuing to follow Government advice on using public transport. Further details can be found on our dedicated coronavirus webpage.

Be aware that there is currently no Night Tube or London Overground, and limited Night buses, so employees and customers should plan their journey home ahead of time. Santander Cycles bikes are available to hire 24 hours a day from locations in central London. Taxis and private hire vehicles are running throughout the night



Streetspace for London plan


We will seek to make provision for loading where it is required, but there may be changes in times when deliveries can take place.

TFL is asking businesses to:

• Retime deliveries to avoid the busiest times, and

• Consolidate trips to minimise the number of deliveries

To help support this, they are:

• Sharing the latest information on the Streetspace for London works to help you plan safe and efficient operations. It is possible that works may affect kerbside access for deliveries at some locations and times during installation and after completion

• Providing helpful toolkits to support changes to deliveries and servicing trips
