Huge reduction in London Underground use after coronavirus lockdown

There has been a massive reduction in the use of London Underground services after the government imposed its coronavirus lockdown.

Despite reports that people are still being crammed onto London tubes, Sadiq Khan’s office has revealed that Underground use has fallen by 92% from this time last year.


This follows Boris Johnson’s announcement on Monday that people should only leave their homes when absolutely necessary, and that all non-essential businesses should allow their staff to work from home.

Indeed, the Mayor’s office said that early-morning tube use was down another 13% from yesterday, and that early-morning bus use was down a further 8%.

In order to control the spread of coronavirus and ensure the NHS doesn’t get dangerously overstretched, a large majority of people need to strictly adhere to the government’s rules.

It seems that most people are listening.
