Coronavirus: Travel information and advice

 Do not travel if you have coronavirus symptoms, you're self-isolating, you've been told by the NHS Test and Trace service to self-isolate or you're living with someone who has symptoms

Last updated 4 November - updated in line with Government guidance on National restrictions from 5 November   

We’re following the Government's safer travel advice to help control the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) when using public transport and to help you travel safely. From 5 November to 2 December national restrictions are in place which mean you must: 

  • Stay at home but if you need to travel try and walk or cycle if you can.
  • If you need to travel you should avoid travelling into or out of your local area and aim to reduce the number of journeys you make.
  • Due to social distancing,  there will be reduced space on transport services and you may have to wait.
  • Be patient and flexible when you travel, avoid peak times and consider others.
  • You must wear a face covering when using public transport unless you're exempt, keep a safe distance, wash or sanitise your hands frequently and use contactless payment or buy your ticket in advance. 

For the latest Government advice and information on national restrictions please visit the website

You must wear a face covering in interchanges and stations, as well as on board public transport, unless you're exempt. You will be breaking the law if you fail to do so and you could be fined.
