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 it is compulsory to wear a three layer face covering on public transport. 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

As we all know, university life is expensive. After all, most people’s student loans won’t even cover their accommodation, never mind other living expenses (though we do have some top tips on saving money as a student). So, like the responsible students we are, many of us will find a part-time job while at university.
Having a part-time job while studying can definitely have its positives and negatives. But here are 5 things you’ll know if you’re working while studying at uni.
You know the drill - you’re in work 4pm - 9pm. At 3:30pm, you’ll get a message from the group chat saying “does anyone fancy doing anything tonight?”.
A part of you will die inside every time a mate says they have “no time to do the essay”. This is the same mate that doesn’t go out, sleeps in until 4pm, and literally does nothing.
Work friends can empathise if you’ve had a tough day in work, while also cheer you up with daily banter. Depending on where you work, you’ll probably be one of the youngest people there, so most likely, everyone in work will tend to mother you without realising! Either that, or they’ll keep mentioning “how young you are” every day.
While most of your uni friends will be going back home, or even spend the week off doing nothing at all, you’ve got to work instead.
Although it might not seem like it now, working part time at uni does give you valuable skills that you can take with you in your future endeavours!
