The director of London 2012 games transport at Transport for London, Mark Evers, has told BigHospitality transport help and advice is available for restaurants, hotels and bars and pubs but hospitality businesses also need to help themselves.
With less than six months to go until the opening ceremony businesses urgently need to look at how their staff will get to work, how they will accept deliveries and whether they need to change how they operate when the transport network becomes busier, according to TfL.
Some of the tips include changing staff rotas or delivery times, stockpiling non-perishable goods or attending one of the 200 plus workshops that are being organised but Evers said it was individual businesses that were best placed to know exactly how they should be preparing for London 2012.
