National lockdown restrictions are in place across England until 2 December but bus services are running as normal. You should only travel for work, education or other permitted reasons.
In South Wales, all of our timetables will go back to what we were running before the 'firebreak' lockdown. There will also be some timetable changes to a number of Aberdare services to improve connectivity.
The new tier system is in operation across Scotland, but if you need to travel, make sure you're up-to-date with what's happening in your area by checking the local government guidance.
We've put in place measures to allow you to travel safely including limiting available seats on buses and enhanced cleaning. Unless you’re exempt, you must wear a face covering throughout your journey. Please avoid busy times, use contactless payment where you can, keep your distance and take your litter with you. Stay up to date on our Coronavirus page.

Alexa Galley of North Oxford had an extra special Mother’s Day after learning she would be treated to a VIP Gold experience from Stagecoach. Alexa won a competition launched by Stagecoach to find mums who deserved an extra special treat.
To celebrate the launch of its Wantage to Oxford Gold service, Stagecoach ran the competition on its Facebook page and asked for people to nominate the person they thought deserved some gold treatment.
Wantage passengers can now travel into the city on Stagecoach Gold buses that offer a luxury service with the comfort of hand stitched Italian leather high back seats, increased legroom and free WiFi.
Alexa was nominated by her husband of 12 years, Paul, who said: “Alexa is a fantastic mum, so I just had to nominate her for this. Alexa always puts our ten year old twins, Melody and Sophia, first and never buys herself anything so I am thrilled that she has won and gets to treat herself.”
As part of the Stagecoach VIP Gold treatment competition Alexa won £200 worth of Westgate shopping vouchers, a £50 meal voucher and an annual pass for Stagecoach bus travel. Four runners up also received a £100 Westgate voucher and a monthly bus pass for their nominations.
Paul continues: “We frequently visit the Westgate as we love the shops but also the events and performances it has. The girls and I can’t wait to spend the day with Alexa shopping as her Mother’s Day gift.”
Alexa said: “I was so over the moon to have won this competition, even just to have been nominated by Paul meant so much. The prizes are great, I am looking forward to a day of shopping with the girls and Paul. I love planning and taking days out with the family in the county and I can’t wait to start organising more with my annual pass.”
Karen Coventry, Business Development Manager, Stagecoach, said: “To celebrate the recent launch of our Gold service in Wantage we wanted to give mums in Oxfordshire a similar treatment with Mother’s Day.”
