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 13 January - updated with peak times information

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

South Yorkshire is currently in national lockdown. This means you should: 

  • Not leave your home except for legally permitted reasons.
  • Work from home unless it is not possible to do your job from home.
  • Stay local. 
  • Walk or cycle if you can.
  • 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 (we're currently experiencing busier times between 10am-3pm) and consider others.
  • You must wear a face covering when using public transport if you can, 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 the 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 could be fined.
