Coronavirus (COVID-19): Advice on how to travel safely

Icon for pdf PLEASE SEE ADVICE TO FOLLOW WHEN USING PASSENGER TRANSPORT [PDF - 51.7KB]

Please follow these steps for your own safety and the safety of others

  • Stay at home if you or anyone in your household is experiencing coronavirus symptoms (new continuous dry cough, fever or the loss of or a change in your sense of smell or taste) or if you are self-isolating or you are shielding

  • Only travel if your journey is essential, for example, for work or shopping.

  • Consider walking or cycling, if you can, to reduce pressure on the road network and on public transport where capacity will be limited

  • Plan your journey and leave additional time due to temporary restrictions or changes to previous timetables or schedules

  • Pay for your journey online, use smart ticketing, the operator's mobile app, or contactless payment, if you can, to reduce cash handling

  • Comply with any signage or instructions on public transport or from transport staff as the safety measures in place are for everyone's benefit

  • When travelling by bus, tram or rail you should, and are expected to, wear a face covering

  • Keep yourself and others safe by maintaining the 2 metre physical distance rule

  • Where impossible to maintain 2 metre distancing, avoid physical contact and face away from others, keep the time you spend within 2 metres of others as short as possible

  • Be considerate of the impact of restrictions on the needs of fellow passengers who may have impairments, disabilities or mobility issues

  • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water or use a hand sanitiser before and after every transport journey.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding during these difficult times.

    Keep yourself and others safe by following this advice

    Before you make any travel plans you should consider the following two questions:

    1. Should I travel?

    You should stay at home if you:

  • are experiencing any coronavirus symptoms

  • are self-isolating as a result of coronavirus symptoms or sharing a household with somebody with symptoms

  • or are shielding.

    2. Is my journey necessary?

    Before you travel, you should consider if your journey is necessary. This will ensure the transport network can keep running and allows people who need to make essential journeys to travel.

    Some examples of necessary travel are:

  • to get to and from work, if you cannot work from home

  • to get food or medical supplies

  • to support someone who is vulnerable, if no-one else can do so

  • to attend critical childcare or learning provision, if the child of a key worker (guidance on who is a key worker), or accompany a child attending critical childcare or learning provision

  • where you need to for other reasons, in line with rules on staying at home.

    If the answers to both the questions above are Yes then we ask you consider what form of transport you will use for your journey.

    In order to reduce pressure on the road network and the public transport system we would like you to consider walking, wheeling or cycling for all or part of your journey, if you can.
