Book my bus ride
The ongoing restrictions on travel, most recently during the English national lockdown and now the tiered system, mean passenger numbers continue to be significantly down on normal levels, so even with reduced capacity due to social distancing, there is plenty of space on our buses.
As a result, we are seeing very little demand for booking a seat, so we’re putting Book my bus ride on hold for the time being.
