Coronavirus update


From 15th June 2020 it will become mandatory to wear a face covering on public transport.

Face coverings are not the same as face masks and can be made from scarves or other textiles. You should avoid using medical grade masks so that they can remain available for front line workers. Take a look at - how to make your own face covering at home.

The safety and well-being of our passengers and colleagues is our top priority.

We have introduced an enhanced cleaning regime on our vehicles and across our facilities to ensure all touch points including hand rails, push bells, ticket machines and cab areas are thoroughly cleaned every day. Drivers are provided with personal sanitizer and have access to facilities to wash their hands. 

We ask everyone to help us make essential journeys safer by following government advice:

  • If possible, walk or cycle to get to your destination.
  • Try to travel at off peak hours to avoid busy periods.
  • Keep 2 m apart from people not from your household whilst waiting.
  • Have exact fare where possible to minimise contact with the driver.
  • Bus capacity has been reduced to maintain social distancing so be prepared to wait if your bus is showing as full.
  • Stand back and wait for passengers to alight before you board.
  • Take a window seat, avoid standing and leave space in front and behind you.
  • Please keep windows open to help with ventilation.
  • You must wear a face covering on public transport and where possible carry personal hand sanitizer. 
  • Wash your hands before and after you travel.
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue or the inside of your arm if you do not have a tissue.
  • Do not travel if you feel unwell.

Time restrictions on concessionary passes have been reinstated and are no longer valid before 0930. 

AccessBus has been suspended until further notice.

We are continuously monitoring the situation and will adapt our approach in line with government and local authority advice. 

Thank you for your co-operation.
