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 bespoke bus has been out and about on Wirral routes for a few weeks now and will remain in place for a period of 3 years!
The colourful bus has been decorated with torsos and legs of fun characters – such as a dinosaur, a surfer and even a unicorn riding a bicycle – are painted onto the side of the bus, with the heads and shoulders of the seated bus passengers appearing to create the top halves.
Rob Jones, Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire managing director said: “We’re so pleased to have partnered with Autism Together on this brilliant project. Our bus has received a lovely makeover with this creative wrap, which will put a smile on people’s faces, bring a splash of colour to Wirral’s roads, and most importantly, raise awareness of the amazing work Autism Together does and help to raise funds for their Future 50 appeal.”
Robin Bush, CEO of Autism Together, said: “Autism Together has its roots in the heart of the community and it’s fitting to see that a bus which will drive through the communities in which we serve will have our name so vibrantly displayed on it. We are very excited by the partnership with Stagecoach and I love the fun and funky approach that the artist Sophie Green has taken in decorating the vehicle. I hope people will enjoy the design and get behind our campaign.”
Autism Together’s Future 50 appeal is raising money to build an autism centre in Wirral. For further information visit the website at www.autismtogether.co.uk/future50.Stagecoach
