Important Information

As restrictions start to lift and the government’s roadmap out of lockdown comes into effect, we are here to support our local communities. Currently, the government is urging everyone to minimise travel as much as possible. If you choose to travel, please travel safely:

  • Face coverings must be worn at all times* when travelling
  • Please sit one per row
  • Pay by contactless or use the app if possible
  • Cash will be accepted but exact fares only, no change given
  • Plan your journeys in advance
    *unless exempt

English government advice also recommends that if you do choose to travel you should:

  • Avoid making unnecessary trips and combine trips where possible
  • Plan ahead and avoid busy times and routes on public transport
  • Regularly wash or sanitise your hand

Our first priority is to keep you and our staff safe. Should there be any impact to our services or timetables, we will update you as soon as possible on our website and via real time data in our Arriva UK Bus app. Visit our Coronavirus page for more information.
