10th June 2020 - Updated Safety Measures - FACE COVERINGS

Face Coverings - Updated 21st July 2020

With effect from Monday, 15th June 2020, it will become compulsory for all passengers unless exempt for medical reasons or age (children under 11) to wear a face covering when travelling on public transport in England.  This follows new Guidance and Regulations that have been issued by the Government, while we recover from the Coronavirus.

Our drivers have been instructed to challenge any passenger who refuses to wear a face covering, and if they refuse then we will keep records of the refusal and these passengers will be reported to the authorities.

Please be aware that our drivers have been issued with a clear visor or a face covering which they will wear while passengers board or alight.  However they will not wear these while they are driving as they are exempt from having to.

Please ensure that you are carrying and wearing you face mask, when you board and travel on our buses.
