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, please wear a face covering, if you can.

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

Lost property

We understand that leaving an item on a vehicle can be distressing and we will do what we can to support you to be reunited with your belongings.

However, due to the current social distancing and travel restrictions in place for COVID-19 we are trying to limit the number people arriving in our depots.

Please find details below for our temporary changes to our lost property process which will be in place until further notice:

  • Perishable items will immediately be placed in the bin and will not be returned
  • Phones and Wallets and other items will be booked in and locked away for at least 72 hours to limit the number of people touching these items. Please email [email protected] in the first instance to find out if we have your item and we can advise you further on an individual basis.
  • PLEASE DO NOT ARRIVE AT THE DEPOT TO COLLECT OR ENQUIRE ABOUT AN ITEM WITHOUT AN APPOINTMENT
