Coronavirus: Travel information and advice

 Do not travel if you have coronavirus symptoms, you are self isolating or you are living with someone who has symptoms

Last updated 2 December - updated in line with temporary measures - face covering's guidance updated

We’re following Government advice to help control the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) when using public transport and to help you travel safely.

From Tuesday 30 November the Government introduced measures to help slow the spread of the Omicron variant, it is now compulsory to wear a face covering on public transport unless you are exempt. 

To help reduce the spread of COVID-19 we need you to continue to:

  • Be patient and flexible when you travel and consider others, plan ahead and avoid peak times (we’re currently experiencing busier buses on weekdays between 7-9am and 2-5pm and 7-9am and 3-5pm on tram).  Visit our 'When is the best time to travel page' for more information. 
  • Wear a face covering, unless you're exempt, when using public transport, as well as our interchanges and stations. 
  • Allow space for yourselves and others around you when using our interchanges, stations and public transport,
  • Wash or sanitise your hands frequently and use contactless payment or buy your ticket in advance.
  • Walk or cycle if you can.

Face coverings

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