Christmas bus, tram and train travel

Last updated: 24 December 10:12 - added note that last bus and tram times on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve are available on our service change page

Travelling over the festive period will look a bit different this year, remember to follow the Coronavirus guidance to help you travel safely.

Please be prepared for the fact that journeys may be busier and take longer than usual over the Christmas period. In some cases, last departures will be earlier than usual, or there will be limited or no service.

Christmas bubbles and travel plans

On Christmas Day (25 December) you can travel between tiers if necessary to meet with your Christmas bubble. Please be aware that no public transport services will run on Christmas Day. 

You should consider carefully the risks of travelling at all.  You can find information on Christmas bubbles and travel on the website.

However you choose to travel, you should plan your journey carefully, book ahead, consider quieter routes and check for disruption before you leave to help keep everyone safe when travelling for Christmas. If you travel to an area in another Tier or to another UK nation, you should follow local restrictions at your location, stay local and avoid unnecessary travel within the area for the Christmas period.
