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

Statement in response to the Greater Manchester Clean Air Zone proposal.
Elisabeth Tasker, Managing Director of Stagecoach Manchester, said: "This is nothing short of a stealth tax on bus passengers, many of whom are the poorest and most excluded in our communities.
In contrast, today's announcement of a new bus tax shows a continuing lack of political courage and leadership. Pollution levels are four times worse in nose to tail traffic. Political leaders in Greater Manchester should be tackling the root cause of dirty air: crippling road congestion caused by too many cars on our roads."
