The City of Oslo fears many passengers and little respect towards the infection preventative measures in the city’s public transportation services in autumn. The Municipality demands immediate action from the government.
-” As society opens up again, there are more people who will want to use public transportation, and it will be impossible to comply with the preventative measures.” says Arild Hermstad, City Councilor for Environment and Transport, to NRK.
He hopes for public transport to be open with an increased capacity through the so-called Copenhagen-model. This means that it is only face-to-face contact on the bus that is to be avoided and this opens public transportation to 70 percent capacity instead of 35 to forty percent with which it operates today, according to Hermstad.
