Tier 3: Reminder Of Social Distancing and Safe Travel.

Make a plan:

  • Allow extra time for your journey and try to travel at quiet times:  After 0900 and before 1500
  • Check our latest timetables before you travel www.brylaine.co.uk/timetables
  • We PROVIDE HAND SANTIZER ON ALL OF OUR BUSES so please ensure you use it before taking a seat.
  • Unless you're exempt, please remember to wear a face covering throughout your journey ensuring it covers your mouth and nose. 

Social distancing at the bus stop:


  • You must wear a face coverings when using indoor public transport hubs in England, unless you are exempt.
  • To allow for social distancing buses will have limited capacity. A passenger to every double seat. (With the execption of student only education travel whereby these rule do not apply).
  • Look out for other passengers who might need to travel more urgently than you.
  • At bus stops, try to keep at least one metre away from anyone else in the queue.
  • There may be additional signage to guide you at bus stations on how to queue.
  • Let people off the bus before you get on and try to keep a safe distance between you, the driver and other customers.  
  • Pay by contactless, by smartcards, concessionary card or use exact change wherever possible. 

Social distancing on the bus: 


  • Only one person can sit in a double seat, unless you’re with a member of your household or social bubble.
  • You must sit diagonal to the person in the row in front and behind. You should  leave the seat behind and next to them empty.
  • Please leave the seat behind the driver free.
  • If you are unable to wear a face covering you will be asked to sit to the rear of the vehicle. This is to protect you from multiple contacts when other passengers are boarding. 
  • If you’re physically able to use the top deck of the bus please do as this keeps seats free on the lower deck for people who are unable to use the stairs. 
  • Don't stand on the bus.  There is no standing whilst under either tier restrictions or lockdown. 
  • Once you’re on the bus open a window, if you can, to help with ventilation. 
  • When leaving the bus stay seated, ring the bell and take everything with you. 

Let us know if you think your bus is too busy to allow for social distancing.
