Coronavirus - Services Currently Operating

The table below shows the current status of all our scheduled bus services. Short notice cancellations remain a possibility dependent upon driver availability.

We will only be able to accommodate a maximum of 8 passengers on each bus in order to observe the current social distancing guidelines and we are also taking additional steps to protect drivers and passengers including enhanced cleaning. Please assist our drivers in making conditions as safe as possible for everyone and if passenger numbers exceed the safe limit, we will endeavour to put additional buses onto routes as soon as the number of volunteer drivers allows. We regret that drivers will not be able to assist passengers with their purchases until conditions become safe to do so. Whilst we will still accept cash payments, we urge passengers to use contactless payment wherever possible and to note that change will NOT be given.

Remember that face coverings are mandatory on public transport unless your are exempt (see below).

We need your help. Wear a face covering to stop the spread of the virus and protect everyone on board. If you don't have your own we can provide you with one on the bus. However there are some exemptions (see below).

Be safe.

  • Children aged under 11
