Bruzz reported that 45% of respondents to a survey said they consider trains to be not very safe from a health standpoint. That number was 54% when it came to the metro, trams, and buses. In June those numbers were 41% and 48%, respectively.
The survey also found that 30% of respondents said they travel more by foot now than they did before the crisis, which is down from 33% in June. For bikes, that number decreased from 22% in June to 16% for November and December.
Commuting trips saw a similar decrease, with 16% of people reporting to have used a bike to get to work or school in June but 11% in November or December, and the numbers for walking dropping from 7% to 5%.
One reason for a decrease in the use of public transit is the lack of people commuting anywhere at all: Belgians went to work an average of 3 days per week in November and December, with many people taking winter holidays or teleworking as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
