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

Bus operator Stagecoach has introduced changes to travel for College students in Sheffield.
From January 2015, Sheffield College students will need to use a valid NUS (National Union of Students) card or NUS extra card to buy a £1 single bus fare or £7 student week bus ticket.
Previously, students could use a Sheffield College ID card.
Young people with a 16 to 18 Student pass issued by the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive can also buy a 70p single fare in South Yorkshire, a Stagecoach £2 South Yorkshire Child dayrider and a £5 South Yorkshire Child bus megarider.
Paul Lynch, managing director, Stagecoach Yorkshire, said: “Unfortunately, the Sheffield College ID cards no longer show an expiry date, which means that drivers can’t ensure they are valid for discounted travel. That’s why we’ve introduced this change.
“Our drivers will be accepting a valid NUS card for £1 single bus fares or £7 student week bus tickets bringing us in line with other local operators.”
