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

Artwork created by pupils from a Basingstoke School has been displayed on the exterior of a local Stagecoach Bus running across Basingstoke and the surrounding area.
As part of Stagecoach's recent Green Week, pupils at Great Binfields Primary School were asked to design posters on the theme of what green means to them.
Operations Manager for Basingstoke, Martin Gibbon said: "We received some very colourful entries. It's great to see young children embracing local and global environmental issues and taking practical steps to reduce their carbon footprint so I'm extremely delighted to be able to display their artwork on our bus."
Stagecoach’s annual Green Week aims to raise awareness of environmental issues among staff and passengers through a series of events. It is currently in the third year of a five-year plan to reduce its own carbon footprint as a business.
Since the inaugural Stagecoach Green Week in 2009, the bus group has made significant strides in its drive to take action on climate change.
The school received a visit from Stagecoach to present the vehicle to the young pupils and to thank them for their hard work.
