For the latest travel information for England, Wales and Scotland, see our Coronavirus page.
From Monday 17th May in England only, we’re safely and steadily making more seats available on local buses, when busy. For full details go to our travelling safely page.
Please continue to keep your distance, where possible and wear a face covering throughout your journey, unless you’re exempt.
Life’s looking a bit brighter now that there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel. Restrictions are slowly being lifted, giving us all the chance to get out and about again with friends and family. While this is exciting, it might also be a bit daunting for some people, so we want to reassure you that we’re still working hard to keep you safe.
As we’ve done throughout the pandemic, we’re sticking to our daily deep cleans and enhanced cleaning throughout the day, focusing on the parts of the bus you’re most likely to touch. Our drivers also make regular checks of their vehicle to remove any litter that’s been left behind.
Making sure there’s good ventilation on board is really important so we’re opening all windows and fitting devices to keep them open. It’s good for you to know this in advance as you might want to bring a jumper with you if it’s a bit chilly.
To help you keep your distance, our buses have been running with less seats in use. However, we’ve been adjusting timetables to make more buses available at key times.
As more people are now on the move and the buses are getting busier, we want to make sure that we can get our customers where they need to be. So, from Monday 17th May, if you’re using our local buses in England, every forward facing seat will be available when the bus is busy. You won’t be able to use rear facing or side seats, and the much-coveted seat behind the driver is out of use too. Standing on the bus isn’t allowed either, unless you’re physically unable to sit down.
We’ve been able to keep our services running because you, our customers, have worked with us to reduce the spread of Coronavirus. You can continue to help by doing the following
