TfL & Imperial College London Study Shows Impressive Results
29 March 2021
TfL and Imperial College London have released the findings from a study that has impressively shown no trace of Covid-19 or its variants on the London transport network.
Since September, Imperial College London has run monthly tests for all virus variants on the network. Sampling has taken place at a variety of stations and on buses and trains – with the locations changing for each round – and swabs taken from heavily touched areas and air tested for any airborne traces, but none of the tests found any sign of the virus.
These results provide a comforting reassurance for passengers considering their return to work over the coming weeks, and for those already making the journey. You can read the full report here.
The TfL Go App is also a handy tool for planning your journey around quieter times, and provides alternative walking or cycling routes.
