Like elsewhere in the country, public transport services have been affected at Thorpe Park due to CV-19. Many services have, however, started to return to more normal patterns of operation.
Government guidance states that if you do plan on travelling by public transport, you should travel at quieter times, using quieter stations and stops, or opting to walk the first or last mile of your journey, if you can. You must also wear face coverings on public transport and in substantially enclosed area of transport hubs in England. Please see our guide to using public transport through CV19, or refer to operator websites for further information.
We understand that a lot of employees across the site will be working from home but there are some people that are still required to travel to work and some of those people will need to use public transport.
