Public transport provides a vital role in keeping the country running and ensuring critical sector workers in the health and emergency services can fulfil their roles. This is a fast-evolving situation, but for now the current Government advice is that people are able to continue to use public transport as they go about their lives.
Bus and coach operators have extensive cleaning regimes that maintain high levels of hygiene for passengers to protect the health and well-being of their customers and employees. These regimes are carefully monitored and reviewed, and operators are introducing enhancements as necessary.
As the situation evolves, the industry will continue to engage with government, follow the guidance from public health bodies, and provide advice and updates to customers on their services.
