Why is van sharing suspended?!

15 Sep 2020, 13:42

Genuine question, can get in a taxi with strangers, can get on the bus with strangers. You can even go and sit in bars, pubs and restaurants with strangers.

But we can't jump in a van together even though we're mostly stood in each others personal space for hours, in the office with 0 social distancing.

Maybe the 'muppets' have kids to fetch and look after school and they dont want to be harassed into working afternoons so thats why they use their cars.

And then you and your colleagues stopped doing it or were you forced by management to mingle close together?

I honestly think the current way of working suits RM down to the ground. No more fines for walks failing or SD’s being delivered late. The fact there has been seemingly no move to head back to park & loop tells me that we won’t see it return this side of Christmas,if,at all

No, he is suggesting that you only have experience in your office and generalising one office to all isn't applicable.

Also its impossible to keep track of every single thread thats been active in the last few days so not sure why you see that as funny.

Busses require you to wear a mask and social distance. They also have limits on how many passengers they can carry - You can't social distance in a CDV, but you can wear a mask.

Taxis mostly have a screen between the passengers and the driver. RM doesn't have a system for installing a screen between colleagues.

They try and give out double lapsing on Monday and Tuesday.But no van share means half of it left at the office.Then three days worth out on Wednesday if they are lucky which means cut offs.
