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
As you get ready to return to school, we know you’ll have some concerns about what might be different for you when you use the bus. At this difficult time our priority is to protect the safety of children, our passengers and colleagues.
When using our services, Students should always try to socially distance by at least one metre.
We have also created a number of dedicated School / College bus services, of which the Department for Education (DfE) have advised that social distancing does not apply on these bus services.
Below is an update with the latest advice and information about travelling on these dedicated school bus services:
We may need to change or adapt some elements of our plans as the situation changes in the UK. Please ensure you check this page regularly for any updates as we will add additional information as more is known.
