Bus And Train Services Over The Holidays

It’s a fairly simple pattern this year compared with earlier years. It’s also encouraging to read that German and French research indicates that with spacing, masks and extra cleaning, bus, train and tram services present a very low risk of spreading the Covid-19 virus. My best wishes for a happy holiday despite the restictrictions!
