Coronavirus (COVID-19): safer travel guidance for passengers

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-safer-travel-guidance-for-passengers

School Bus Services and Travel Advice

Government guidance is that students should avoid public transport where possible and trips to school should be made by cycling and walking. For guidance and advice on cycling and walking, including tips and advice on journey planning, click here.

If pupils must use the bus or public transport, space will be limited due to social distancing – and once capacity is reached passengers will not be permitted to board on commercial or Yellow Buses.

Those who must use public transport can help maintain a safer environment by following a few simple measures:

  • Wear a face covering
  • Keep a two-metre distance where possible on the platform, stop, station and on board
  • Wash or sanitise your hands regularly and carry you own hand sanitiser
  •  Buy tickets online for smart cards or use mobile apps where possible, and use exact change if cash is needed

A TfGM igo card is proof of age ID (needed for child tickets from age 11) and is also a smart card for buying tickets online, see tfgm.com/igo for details.

Information on Transport and Face Coverings.

Face coverings are now mandatory if using public transport in England.

However, the Department for Transport published regulations and guidance over the weekend which set out some important exemptions.

For example, children under the age of 11 will not be required to wear a face covering.

The requirement to wear a face covering also does not apply if you have a ‘reasonable excuse’ not to. Reasonable excuses include:

  • if you have a physical or mental illness or impairment, or a disability that means you cannot put on, wear or remove a face covering
  • if putting on, wearing or removing a face covering would cause you severe distress
  • if you are travelling with, or providing assistance to someone who relies on lip reading to communicate.

 The full list of exemptions and reasonable excuses can be found at:

The regulations setting these out in law can be found at:
