It's no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering on public transport in England, Scotland or Wales. We do encourage you to wear a face covering in crowded spaces, if you can. For the latest travelling safely information for England, Wales and Scotland, see our Coronavirus page.
Don't worry, the latest PAYG technology makes it easy for inspectors to check. Just show them the card or device you paid with. They can confirm the ticket by checking the last 4 digits of your card number with the on-bus ticket machine.
