If possible, please continue to work from home.
We are asking people to continue to walk, wheel or cycle if they can and where that is an alternative to using public transport. If using public transport, to be mindful of the restrictions and guidance in place. Be considerate to others who may need longer to board and disembark.
On public transport, do not use accessible seats/areas unless you have a need.
If sharing a private vehicle with others out with your household please refer to the guidance on car sharing.
If you will be travelling in a works vehicle, either to or from work or during your working day, please refer to the published guidance.
Where staff need to be present at the workplace to do their job, we have asked employers to be as flexible as possible, to allow earlier or later start and finish times to spread peoples use of the transport system so it’s less busy at the start and end of the traditional working day.
We are engaging with businesses to identify other potential measures to ease pressure on the transport system while ensuring those who need to travel to work can do so as safely as possible.
For people who need to travel we are asking everyone to plan ahead when travelling and avoid traditionally busy times wherever possible.
If driving, remember some car parks may be closed so we would encourage people to check before travelling.
Please do not use Accessible Parking Bays unless you are a Blue Badge Holder, even if the car parks appear quiet.
For those who need to use public transport, ensuring safety when travelling is our number one priority - we are continuing with the requirement for physical distancing and operators have increased the level of cleaning on all transport.
Physical distancing means that fewer seats than normal are available. We are increasing the number of services as much as is possible, however, we also need fewer people to travel than normal to help keep services available for those who need it most. Do not use accessible seats/areas unless you have a need.
It is vital that everyone takes personal responsibility for their own and others’ safety when they are travelling by public transport and adhere to physical distancing when travelling.
The reduction in travel and increased walking, wheeling or cycling improved air quality during lockdown – as we move through this transition, we encourage everyone to consider continuing to work from home and do business virtually where they can and to walk, wheel and cycle wherever possible so there are lasting improvements to the environment and health.
