Please note from Monday 15th June anyone using public transport will be required to wear a face covering in line with government guidance.

Do not crowd at doorways to get on board. Do not sit next to others where possible. Use mobile, smartcard or contactless payments. Social distancing is important to keep both passengers and staff safe. The below video advises how you can adhere to social distancing whilst travelling on the TfWM public transport network:
