Coronavirus - COVID19: Service information
At First Bus, your safety is our top priority. In the wake of the evolving impacts of coronavirus, we are working with the Government and wider industry to ensure we are following the latest advice to keep you safe on our buses.
Following on from Government’s publication of its ‘safer transport’ guidance for operators, we are finalising social distancing plans and will be introducing safe capacities across our fleet. These measures will be introduced across our buses to ensure the safety of our colleagues and customers during Covid19. Thank you so much for your ongoing support, which is essential as we work together to maintain safe travel across our networks.
The latest updates to your local bus services can be found below.
