What prospects for rail ridership recovery? - Chris Stokes

The rail industry is still haemorrhaging income. Although passenger numbers have slowly built up to around 60% of pre-pandemic levels, recovery has been uneven. Leisure travel is close to previous levels – helped by staycation holidays – but commuting and business volumes are still right down. Subject to covid levels not shooting up again, some recovery of city-centre office working is likely from September, but there is no prospect of a return to full, pre-pandemic levels of commuting.
