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

From Monday 6th June some bus passengers in Inverness and Caithness will see changes to their bus services. The majority of service revisions are being introduced due to changes in school closing hours.
Amendments to services are made to accommodate some of the schools across the Highlands having an early closing day on Fridays.
From the same date, Pennyland Drive, Thurso will be re-introduced to the service 79 route. Pennyland Drive was removed from the route in April 2016 due to parked cars making the route inaccessible to buses. Following customer feedback, an alternative route omitting Heathfield Road has been identified and will begin operation at the beginning of June.
Steve Walker, Managing Director for Stagecoach North Scotland said: "The company is always keen to hear feedback from our customers. Our overall aim is to provide a better, more efficient and more reliable package of services to our customers. We have assessed the route in Thurso and are confident we now have an adequate solution to the access problems we have faced on the service 79 route."
