How to travel safely on a bus
- Don't travel if you, or a member of your household or support bubble, have any coronavirus symptoms.
- Don't travel if you have been told to self-isolate by the NHS test and trace service.
- Consider cycling or walking as an alternative.
- Time your journeys for quieter, off-peak times if possible.
- Buy tickets online in advance if possible.
At the bus stop
- Maintain social distancing from other waiting passengers, and wait outside, where possible.
- Don't start to board the bus until any alighting passengers have moved away from the area.
On the bus
- Wearing a face covering is expected on all public transport, with a small number of exceptions for children and those with breathing difficulties and certain disabilities. Further information is available on the government website.
- Maintain social distancing whenever possible.
- Use contactless payment if possible. If you can only pay in cash use exact change.
- Don't queue in the aisle or next to the driver to alight.
- Wash your hands, or use hand sanitiser, before and after travelling.
