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 have 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.
