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: Can you continue to work from home and stay local for shopping and services?

Planning ahead: 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.

This section features general advice on transport.

On 20 November 2020 new regulations came in to force that restrict travel in or out of level 3 and level 4 local authority areas, except for essential purposes. The Scottish Government has published guidance on these restrictions.

The Transport Scotland guidance on safe travel is still valid and should be read in conjunction with the Scottish Government guidance.

You can find out what level applies to any area of Scotland via the postcode checker on the Scottish Government website.
