Over half of London’s commuters plan to travel differently reveals Addison Lee survey

Over half of London’s commuters plan to make alternative journeys when commuting back to work, according to an Addison Lee commissioned survey.

With back-to-work guidelines changing, discussions between employees and employers have begun with regards to when workers return back to the office.

Private hire operator, Addison Lee, commissioned a survey of 1,000 London commuters to find out what they are thinking when it comes to making their first commute back into the capital.

56% of those asked plan to make their journeys to work differently - this might include avoiding rush hour or attempting a different type of commute.

According to Addison Lee, 40% are planning to use private hire vehicles, whilst 28% say walking will play a bigger part in their journeys.

The minicab firm also asked what would make commuters feel safer on their commute:

  • 69% said regular disinfection of public transport

  • 65% said enforcement of social distancing

  • 62% said readily available hand sanitiser.

In response to the survey, Addison Lee has launched its Safer Journey Initiative (SJI). A spokesperson from the firm described the new initiative, saying: “We’ve listened to you, and launched our SJI - a range of measures to ensure the health and wellbeing of both you and your driver.

“These include regular deep cleaning of our cars with an electrostatic spray that kills 99.99% of germs, closing our front passenger seat and asking passengers to use our rear seats to encourage social distancing and regular provision to all our drivers of PPE including hand sanitiser.”

Addison Lee have produced a short video showing the SJI in action, which will be promoted over the coming weeks.
