Commercial sponsors of London 2012 will deploy staff to work at the Games as much as anyone else. However, it is my view that members of the Olympic Family should use London's fantastic public transport system wherever this is possible and practical, and following correspondence I have had with Jacques Rogge we are in discussions with LOCOG and the IOC about facilitating this.
