Transport during Alert Level 2

Under Alert Level 2 Council’s bus service will continue to operate as normal.

Fare collection will resume at Alert Level 2, from Monday 13 September. We encourage passengers to have the correct fare amount to limit interaction with bus drivers.

In accordance with government requirements passengers must wear a face covering while on the bus and at arrival and departure points (e.g. bus stops).

If you are taking the bus you can help keep yourself and others safe by following this advice:

  • Sit next to people you know, otherwise keep the seat next to you free
  • Follow the on-board guidance and maintain physical distancing from those you don’t know whilst on board, and keep 2 metres distance while waiting for services
  • Comply with any temporary barriers and seat signage indicating where you are allowed to sit
  • Scan the QR code displayed on the bus displayed on the bus.
  • Where passengers are unable to scan the QR code they are asked to individually record details of each trip for purposes of contact tracing.
  • Do not travel on the bus if you are unwell, have been advised to take a Covid-19 test or are awaiting test results.
