Social distancing at bus stops and stations:
 

  • Due to the requirement of social distancing, our buses will have limited capacity at this time. If your required bus has a BUS FULL sign please be prepared to wait for the next bus as we may be unable to stop.

  • Please be kind and look out for other passengers who might need to travel more urgently than you.

  • Look out for and follow any information displays at your bus stop which offer guidance of how to travel safely.

Social distancing onboard the bus: 

  • Sit in a window seat, leaving the seat row in front and behind you empty and please do not sit directly behind the driver.

  • Only one person can sit in a double seat, unless you’re with a member of your household.
