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

Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire has introduced free Wi-Fi on all its buses across the Wirral.
The changes to the fleet mean passengers can stay connected even when they’re on the move, with free Wi-Fi services fitted into each bus.
Passengers crossing the Mersey will also benefit from the upgrades and customers will be able to access the free Wi-Fi easily by selecting ‘Stagecoach Wi-Fi’, which will take them to a page where they will be asked to enter their details.
Stagecoach is continuously updating and upgrading its buses across Merseyside and South Lancashire to maximise comfort for passengers.
The Wirral Wi-Fi initiative follows popular service upgrades that took place in Liverpool last year, where Stagecoach introduced a fleet of 32 luxury buses with Wi-Fi across a number of popular routes. These include the 82 and 86 routes traveling through Liverpool, Wavertree, Aigburth and Garston, in addition to the 14 route which travels through Liverpool, Anfield and Croxteth. The luxury buses are fitted with large leather seats and specially tinted windows for temperature and light control, and include high-speed Wi-Fi and USB electronic charging points.
Rob Jones, managing director of Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire, said: “We’re so pleased to announce that all our buses that travel across the Wirral are now fitted with free high-speed Wi-Fi. We recognise that our passengers want to stay up-to-date and connected even when travelling, so this is an exciting time for passengers on the Wirral.
“It’s no secret that we quickly becoming a ‘smart phone generation’, so the addition of free Wi-Fi could transform bus journeys for our passengers. It might give commuters a chance to catch up on emails before their busy day begins or even provide an opportunity for passengers to switch off by catching up on their favourite TV show.“Our high-spec vehicles offer comfort as well as good value for money and we continuously develop our service to ensure we remain in tune with what our passengers want.”
