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
You can be rest assured that we’re making it safer for everyone to travel by bus with daily deep cleans and extra disinfecting throughout the day, paying special attention to the items you come into contact with, such as handrails, bells, seats, poles.
Social distancing measures are in place for added safety. We’re carrying a lot less people on each bus, with set seating plans on board to help everyone keep their distance. We’re also opening all the windows on the bus and you must wear a face covering, so remember yours.

To help you plan your journey, we’ve added a handy new feature to the live map on the Stagecoach Bus App that shows you the busy and quiet times to travel on your service. This simple colour coding is based on how many people normally use that bus.
