Public transport capacity limits eased
Trains and buses can now accommodate more people with changes from July 1 on capacity limits on the NSW public transport network.
Parliamentary Secretary for Central Coast Mr Adam Crouch said the changes were consistent with advice from NSW Health.
"The NSW Government's Covid-safe Transport Plan allows trains to carry 68 people per carriage and buses will be able to carry 23 people, more than double the previous capacity limits," Mr Crouch said.
"I urge everyone to continue social distancing rules and the best way to do this is by only standing or sitting on a green dot."
Mr Crouch said the NSW Government had implemented a number of changes to help people return to work and study in a COVID-safe say.
"Marshalling officers have been deployed to manage crowded commuter hubs, provide extra guidance to people and limit numbers on platforms if required," he said.
"Since March more than 700 additional cleaners have also been employed across NSW to undertake more regular cleaning on the public transport network.
"It's really important that people stay home and get tested if sick and cough or sneeze into their elbow, particularly when nearby others."
