The City Council of Oslo has asked Ruter to start opening the doors on public transport automatically again due to increasing infection pressure.
“The City Council has asked us to do it, and the doors will therefore open automatically as long as the City Council wants,” press officer Sofie Bruun in Ruter told the newspaper Avisa Oslo.
Automatic opening of the doors on buses, trams, and subways was introduced as an infection control measure to avoid infection through contact during the corona pandemic. Still, from November 5, Ruter repealed the measure. According to Ruter, there was no longer any justification for the measure at the time.
Oslo Municipality owns Ruter, so it can make the company change its rules.
