Coronavirus Update Close

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

Changes on board our trams

11 Sep 2020

As more employees and students return to workplaces and education, we have reviewed how best to provide the safe capacity needed for customers on our trams. 

From 14 September, ahead of the Purple route and a significant section of the Blue route re-opening from 15 September, we will be putting in place revised social distancing arrangements consistent with the government's 1m+ guidelines. Labels which currently recommend seats not to be used will be removed. 

 

These changes will provide more flexible and efficient use of available seats, such as for family groups or customers in the same household, and aim to reduce any congestion around doorways.

 

The safety and well-being of our customers and our employees remains our priority. We would kindly ask passengers to continue to be considerate to others, respect social distancing, wear face coverings as required and to follow the public health advice around handwashing before and after travel.  We would also advise passengers to try and avoid busier times where possible.
