In line with the latest government guidance, we've put in place further measures in England to help customers practice social distancing. This includes limiting the available seats on buses.
Face coverings are compulsory when using public transport in England and Scotland. In Wales you must wear a 3 layer face covering on public transport and put it on before travelling unless you are exempt. It is also now compulsory to wear face coverings when using indoor public transport hubs in England only.
The safety of our customers and employees is our priority, so please avoid busy times, use contactless payment and take your litter with you. For up to date information see our Coronavirus page

Route X24 was recently extended to operate hourly between St Andrews, Cupar, Glenrothes, Halbeath Park & Ride, Dunfermline, Kincardine, Glasgow city centre, Braehead Shopping Centre and Glasgow Airport.
Following the success of the service, the company have now invested £1m into 3 new coaches for the route.
The new coaches have a range of modern features including reclining leather seats, power sockets, air-conditioning, free Wi-Fi access, large luggage lockers and a toilet on board.
The new Plaxton Elite coaches have been rebranded as 'Express JET Connect' to be easily recognisable on the road and will be in service from early December.
Douglas Robertson, Commercial Director, Stagecoach East Scotland said: "Our new vehicles are the latest in luxury coach travel and we're looking forward to adding the Elite coaches to the fleet. The extension of the X24 route has been popular since it was launched in August and proves to be a great value travel option to reach Glasgow Airport whether it's for business or pleasure."
Journeys from Fife to Glasgow Airport run from 0348 every day, until the last journey returns from the airport at 2235.
The Express JET Connect route provides a great value travel option to reach Glasgow Airport and period return tickets are valid for up to 28 days so there's no need to worry about airport parking, customers can just jump on the coach to start their trip.
Mr Robertson added: "A period return ticket costs £19, valid for 28 days and kids can travel for just £1 for a period return when bought alongside the adult ticket."
Express JET Connect service forms part of the multi-award winning Express City Connect network operated by Stagecoach East Scotland which provides luxury coach travel across Fife and into Edinburgh, Livingston, Glasgow, Perth, Dundee and Aberdeen.

The JET747 service provides a direct service from Fife to Edinburgh Airport up to every 30 minutes, departing from Halbeath Park & Ride, Inverkeithing rail station, Ferrytoll Park & Ride to Edinburgh Airport.
To coincide with the increased frequency of the JET747 service, Halbeath and Ferrytoll Park & Ride car parks are now 24/7.
