From On London
Of course, the pattern – insofar as we can be sure it is one – might change if confidence in using public transport returns and people begin using buses, the Underground and so on more and their cars less. Last week, demand for buses was around 65 per cent of normal and for the Tube around 45 per cent. Both, though particularly buses due to school holidays, always tend to be a bit quieter in August. Businesses and TfL alike will be hoping for a pick-up from September.
