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
You may have seen Hattie, one of our original open top Skegness Seasiders out and about taking people to all the fun places whilst they're on holiday. Well, now you can ‘Get Chatty with Hattie’ as she embarks on a new adventure as a community bus.
Hattie has been redesigned to promote a safe place for people to come along and chat with seating areas and tables, tea and coffee making facilities, a children’s Wendy house, games, chalkboard and magnetic wall games. She has been adapted to host families and the elderly, encouraging the community to come together.
The initiative is part of our efforts to offer support and advice about mental health. Hattie is one way in which we hope to support those in the wider community.
Look out for Hattie as she tours the East Midlands, supporting in our efforts to bring communities together, promote health and well-being and provide an important space for families and children, as well as older people, to meet, take part in fun activities, and ‘get chatty with Hattie!'
