Travelling during COVID-19

Helping you to plan ahead and stay travel safe

It's more important than ever to stay up to date with travel advice. You can help keep Scotland moving by: 

Reducing the need to travel:  Work from home if you can and stay local for shopping and services.

Planning ahead: If you need to make an essential journey, check your travel options in advance. 

Choosing active travel: Walk, wheel or cycle where possible.

Staying travel safe: Help ensure we have a safe public transport system, available to those most in need.

On 16 March the Scottish Government published its timetable for easing COVID-19 restrictions. All parts of the country moved to Level 3 on 26 April, lifting remaining travel restrictions within Scotland.

Scottish regulations now allow unrestricted travel between Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man. You should check those destinations’ own rules on entry and local restrictions before you travel. The Scottish Government has published updated local protection levels.
