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

The formal signing of the Bus Alliance agreement also releases additional Government OLEV funding of £4.7 million – the single biggest award out of the last round of funding in July – for 72 new, greener buses across the City Region.
Elisabeth Tasker, Managing Director of Stagecoach Merseyside & South Lancashire, said: "Buses are central to life in Merseyside, from getting people to work, helping shoppers access our high streets, and connecting people with education, health and leisure opportunities.
"We are making a huge investment to attract more people to bus travel: better value fares, greener vehicles, smart ticketing and tools like our new Stagecoach bus app which offers features such as journey planning and live bus information.
"Merseyside already has one of the highest levels of bus satisfaction in the country. By working together through the new alliance, and tackling the growing challenge of road congestion, we can deliver an even better customer experience and get more people on board the bus."
