Coronavirus Advice for Using Public Transport

Following the latest government’s advice, the  UK nations are now in national a lockdown until further notice. During this time you should only travel if it is essential to do so and follow the guidance for restrictions in each nation.

You can find more information on those restrictions here: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus

If you need to use public transport during this time, please ensure you are wearing a face mask unless exempt and you are keeping distance from other passengers. Bus operators will keep buses and other vehicles clean and making sure that staff have good hand hygiene and maintaining social distancing as far as is possible is a priority.

Changes to timetables

Due to these circumstances operators have been unable to plan ahead, therefore timetables may change over the coming weeks at very short notice and so you may not see the latest times in our journey plans or at bus stops or stations straight away. We rely on the excellent work of Local Authorities to keep our data updated, and everyone is trying hard to keep up with the rate of change.

As we have more information about timetable changes, we will update you here and will do our very best to make sure we have the most up to date information possible in our journey planner. Always check with the operator before you travel if you have any concerns or are unsure about the times that your bus will run.

If you aren’t sure who operates the service that you want to know about, you can either use our journey planner to plan your journey and find the operator contact and Twitter feed there, or you can search for the timetable if you know the bus number. If you have any problems finding operator details, please contact us.
