Helping school children return to school safely
Now that children are returning to school we have taken measures to ensure that they can return safely via First Bus.
We are continuing with our daily enhanced cleaning regime across our bus fleet with additional focus on all hand and grab rails. More information can be found on our dedicated COVID web page, click here.
Parents can purchase the ticket on their phone and then send the ticket to their child’s phone using Ticket Gifting.
What you need to know about travelling with us
- We are still operating our normal services for essential journeys only with a restricted seating capacity of 50%. See real-time capacity when you track your bus on the First Bus App.
- It’s mandatory for anyone aged five or over to wear a face covering on a public bus service (unless exempt).
- Social-distancing measures are in place on board. Children not from the same household must not sit next to each other. You may only sit with a member of your own household e.g. a brother or sister.
