Coronavirus: Travel information and advice

Updated: 9am Tuesday 26 May

Stay at home as much as possible.

Only travel if necessary – work from home and stay local if you can.

Protect public transport for those with no alternative – do not use it unless you have to.

If you need to travel, walk, cycle or drive if you can.

Due to social distancing there will be limited space on transport services and you may have to wait - please plan ahead, avoid the peaks and be patient when travelling.

If you have to use public transport wear a face covering, keep your distance from other passengers, clean your hands frequently and use contactless payment. If possible, carry a hand sanitiser with you.
