The government in Sweden wants to limit the number of passengers on trains and long-distance buses, the news agency TT writes.

According to the news agency’s information, Minister of Social Affairs Lena Hallengren and Minister of Infrastructure Tomas Eneroth will present the proposal for restrictions on passenger traffic later Tuesday.

According to the proposal, travel companies will not be able to sell more than half of the seats on journeys that are longer than 150 km. Already booked tickets will be exempt from the proposal.

The Swedish government plans to put out the proposal for a quick consultation round.

In Norway, the train companies have already reduced the sale of tickets on routes with seat reservations, in line with recommendations from the National Institute of Public Health (FHI).
