National lockdown restrictions are in place across England until 2 December but bus services are running as normal. You should only travel for work, education or other permitted reasons.
In South Wales, all of our timetables will go back to what we were running before the 'firebreak' lockdown. There will also be some timetable changes to a number of Aberdare services to improve connectivity.
The new tier system is in operation across Scotland, but if you need to travel, make sure you're up-to-date with what's happening in your area by checking the local government guidance.
We've put in place measures to allow you to travel safely including limiting available seats on buses and enhanced cleaning. Unless you’re exempt, you must wear a face covering throughout your journey. Please avoid busy times, use contactless payment where you can, keep your distance and take your litter with you.

Stagecoach Manchester’s 7 day adult tickets will switch to its smart card ticketing platform from Wednesday 11th May, allowing passengers to travel using reusable cards instead of paper tickets.
The 7 day adult tickets are the latest addition to the StagecoachSmart card, as the 28 day and Xtra tickets are already available on the platform. Customers can top up their StagecoachSmart cards online, while the 7 day tickets can also be purchased on the bus.
Stagecoach Manchester managing director, Christopher Bowles, said: “Adding the 7 day adult tickets to the StagecoachSmart card makes it even easier and more convenient for customers to travel by bus. Once you've been issued with a smart card, you should hold on to it and keep using it to store your tickets for travel. You can even buy your tickets online in advance.”
All StagecoachSmart cards registered at stagecoachbus.com between 11th May – 10th June 2016 will be automatically entered into a free prize draw to win one of 50 prizes of a month’s free travel with Stagecoach Manchester.
