Local bus services
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Considerations:
- We kindly ask all passengers to wear a face covering at all times onboard (unless exempt), irrespective of whether the current guidance is mandatory or voluntary.
- Please note, seating capacity may be reduced for us to comply with social distancing regulations.
- As often as possible, we aim to achieve the 1-metre-plus guidance when this is not mandatory.
What is your local bus service?
We operate minibuses on a number of local bus routes. You catch the bus as you would a normal public bus service – there is no need to contact us to book (we are unable to accept bookings).
