Rail and bus links reduced due to sharp fall in passenger numbers

Rail and bus operators are reducing the number of intercity connections following a steep drop in passenger numbers, the ctk news agency reported.

The number of students using rail and bus links dropped following the introduction of distance learning at secondary schools and universities and is expected to drop further this week following the closure of primary schools.

Fewer people are using these connections to commute or go on trips.

During the lockdown in the first wave of the epidemic passenger numbers dropped to a mere 10 percent of the usual.
