Dear customers :
From Thursday 24 September, regulations mean passengers must wear a face covering when travelling by public transport services (including buses, coaches, trains, trams, ferries, hovercraft, cable cars, taxis and private hire vehicles) while they are in England.
You should wear a face covering when using taxis or private hire vehicles. A taxi driver or private hire vehicle operator may be entitled to refuse to accept you if you do not wear a face covering.
If you cannot keep a 2 metre distance, reduce the risk to yourself and others by maintaining a 1 metre distance where possible, and taking suitable precautions.
Follow the advice of the driver. For example, you may be asked to sit in the back left-hand seat if travelling alone. You may want to check with your taxi or private hire operator before travelling if they have put any additional measures in place.
You should use contactless payment if possible, or find out if you can pay online in advance.
Be aware of the surfaces you touch. Be careful not to touch your face. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or the inside of your elbow when coughing or sneezing.
When finishing your journey wash your hands for at least 20 seconds, or sanitise your hands as soon as possible.
Only travel into, out of and within areas under local lockdown if your travel is essential.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
