  • ITV News Anglia spoke to Richard Grey from Grey's of Ely

"We think this is a great way for employees to keep operating safely or to re-open, and also to rebuild trust in public transport and mass transport again. The alternative is that people go back to using cars which has negative connotations on the environment and so on. But we're not done yet, we're going to keep investing in more and more measures."
