What you need to know about travelling by bus
Services will have reduced capacity due to physical distancing. If you normally travel by bus, can you walk, wheel or cycle some of your journey?
By doing so, you could save the seat for someone who really needs it.
If you do travel by bus you may notice some changes. Some bus operators have introduced safety measures to the inside of buses to help maintain physical distancing requirements.
If travelling by bus, consider travelling outside of peak times as these services may be quieter.
Many operators now offer mobile apps to see how busy nearby buses are – helping you to plan ahead.
Remember that timetable changes may also be in place so leave a bit more time for your journey and check before you travel.
