How to travel safely on a bus


Before travelling

  • Don't travel if you, or a member of your household, have any coronavirus symptoms or hae tested positive for coronavirus.
  • 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 highly recommended 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.

  • Keep windows open to improve ventilation.
  • 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.
