Making your way around London can be stressful at the best of times, but getting from A to B through the city streets when you have to observe social distancing measures makes it that much harder to reach your end destination.
Those of you who spend a lot of time in the Big Smoke and who are worried about navigating your way around and about might find the new TfL Go app of particular use at the moment, which has been designed to make it easier to plan journeys in London.
Anyone making use of Tube, rail or bus services, which have all now returned to near-normal levels, will be able to take advantage of real-time train updates and information so they can travel outside peak hours and follow social distancing. Alternative routes are also offered, as well as walking and cycling options.
The app is currently only available on the iPhone but an Android version is set to be launched in the autumn, with new features including toilet locations, lift statuses and live bus information.
Deputy mayor for transport Heidi Alexander said: “London's transport network is central to life in our city and essential to our economic and social recovery from the pandemic.
“We are helping passengers to travel safely around the capital by introducing a wide range of hygiene measures across the network, restoring public transport services to near-normal levels and creating more space for walking and cycling.”
Of course, if you’d rather avoid public transport altogether over concerns about covid-19, there’s always the option of booking a London chauffeur to get you where you need to be in both safety and style. What better way of seeing the city could there possibly be?
