Coronavirus: Travel information and advice

Updated: 5.30pm Wednesday 23 September

Travel guidance

It’s as important as ever to help keep yourself and everyone safe when you’re outside the home by thinking about how and when you travel and following safety guidance.

You can use public transport, but space is limited due to social distancing. Please cycle, walk or drive if you can.

You should work from home if possible.

You must wear a face covering when using the public transport network – including at transport hubs and interchanges – and in taxis and private hire vehicles, unless you are exempt. If you don’t, you may be unable to travel and you could be fined £200. Read our face coverings guidance.

You should keep your distance from other passengers where possible, clean your hands frequently and carry hand sanitiser with you, and use contactless payment if you can.

You can sign up for TfGM travel updates by completing our online form.
