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.
