Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Latest transport updates and news, as well as useful links to other websites for travel advice and information.

We’re working in partnership with transport operators and other partner organisations across Scotland to support the Scottish Government’s response to COVID-19

Stay at home, protect our NHS, save lives

It is important to follow advice to stay at home unless it is essential to go out. By doing this we can all help to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), protect our NHS and save lives.

The Scottish Government has been clear in advising that only essential travel should be undertaken at this time. This applies whether you are using public transport or walking, cycling or driving.

Limited public transport services continue to operate to ensure people who absolutely need to get to work can continue to do so. Visit Traveline Scotland or check with your operator for the latest information on services.

Road construction and maintenance

In response to Scottish Government guidelines, we've instructed our road operating companies that all non-essential operations and maintenance cease and that this is done safely and efficiently. We're also implementing a managed shut down of construction work on our new roads project sites which is likely to take several days to complete in most cases.
