Busworld Academy organized their 3rd webinar about: “How to restart bus operations after a lockdown?”

The revitalization of society after a lockdown will be a phased and difficult process. The offer of adapted and safe public transport will be extremely important herein. Respect for social distancing and hygienic needs for both passengers and staff is top priority in preventing the further spread of the COVID-19 virus, while the re-launch of normal activity must prevent more economic and social loss.

Appropriate service designs need to be well thought through… in public transport in general, and bus services in particular. How do public transport agencies and operators prepare for this? What are first experiences of those who already started up again? What measures are being taken in what phase of the process? How is the client/passenger behaving? Has he/she kept trust in collective transportation? And how can small and middle sized bus operators start up again after several weeks or months without income?

5 executive speakers shared their experiences and insights with you during this Busworld Academy webinar, and tried to answer these burning questions for all.

This webinar was aiming at managers in bus and coach companies and industry associations, worldwide and at all stakeholders that want to contribute to the revival of the industry.
