This will be the 6th next in our WEBINAR SERIES.  Contributions have been incredibly valuable and we are particularly flattered that so many of the esteemed speakers have decided to come back as part of the general discussion group.

Thoroughly enjoyable an full of ideas and friendly challenge to stimulate thoughts . Many sub-topics could each have had their own fireside chat.  Thank you host Wink

Actually I could do an evening one too if that would help us get more people involved after days work which seem sensible. Sorry not to have made today’s when I was busy arranging the webinar for Friday

If you go in via the chrome browser, it is possible to avoid all the nosey attempts until you are under less duress.  I do recommend playing with the app and watching the i ro web ar when you have a spare 34 minutes.
6  All across the Great Western territory / Buses and other ways to travel / Re: How Bus Usage Will Change After Lockdown? on: May 09, 2020, 02:52:21 pm
Bus Lady makes many excellent and valid comments.  In the longer term, operations could be financially sustainable if we can shift car users onto bus and train and spread this across the day.  This may be out best opportunity but will require local authority, community and workplace collaboration to deliver the shared vision. Shift from car will require much greater public transport capacity.  This will be easier for bus to deliver.

It’s increasingly important that we get businesses and board with developing a broader range of work travel times. There is an appetite out there for varied starts and finishes which could work well in more equally spreading resources and providing a consistent level of service.This will also mean onward connections must be provided in a matching way.  I’d be really keen to hear ideas that people have about coordinating working days, matching to school and out times, hospital appointment arrangements et cetera

Going forward, we could be looking at a very different work pattern as more people work from home, Possibly some those who must travel will have staggered shift patterns to their working day.  Handled in the right way this could also present enormous opportunities for an improved passenger experience but we need to get over the inevitable challenges which situation presents to the businesses which inherently rely on numbers. 

Most immediately, TWSW» (TravelWatch SouthWest - website) are keen hear from member groups about safety, reassurance and what it will take to persuade them to choose public transport over the car where there is a choice. There are some really good figures available from Transport Focus which demonstrate passenger fears Which we can use as a basis for discussion with our members which may produce some really good ideas about measures which can be taken to provide adequate safety & reassurance.

We need to make sure that public transport remains affordable for all and we bring the opportunity to use public transport to everyone.  Connectivity must be appropriate for whatever a new norm is, while we accept the system we make now may determine the new norm.

I am given to believe that LA’s running many smaller operators remain inadequately to rewarded to maintain connectivity for communities nor survival of small operators unless there is an additional conversation happening about covid payments for LA somewhere?

This could really frustrate some of the rolling connectivity improvements to integration and seems shortsighted in terms of the necessary modal shift.  

I would be very interested to hear from our friends “in the know” on an area by area basis.
