LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that mass transit systems will remain crucial for the country’s economy for decades to come, rejecting the suggestion the coronavirus pandemic would permanently change work and travel patterns.

“I’ve got absolutely no doubt that mass transit and transport infrastructure is going to be crucial for our country, not just now, but in the decades ahead,” Johnson said on Friday, speaking to reporters from the site of a high speed railway project.
