Lockdown restrictions easing on Monday 19 July
Following The Government’s announcement on lockdown restrictions easing from 19 July, we wanted to take the opportunity to remind you of some of the measures we have in place to keep our customers safe when travelling on our coaches, so here’s a guide for when you get on board.
We are following government guidance and recommend all customers wear a face mask whilst on board. Please remember that not everyone may wish to wear a mask.
Ventilation & Cleaning
We will continue to ensure that all windows are left open for additional ventilation in addition to our enhanced cleaning regime which will remain in place to keep you and others around you safe.
All seats will be in use from Monday 19 July and our coaches will return to full capacity making sure we can take you to where you need to go.
Paying for your journey
Where possible avoid the use of cash and continue to use contactless on board or buy in advance using our mobile app.
Over the coming days we'll be updating the Covid related content on our websites.
Let’s get there together.
At RailAir, your safety is our top priority. In the wake of the evolving impacts of coronavirus, we are working with the Government and wider industry to ensure we are following the latest advice to keep you safe on our coaches.
Following on from Government’s publication of its ‘safer transport’ guidance for bus and coach operators, we have introduced safe capacities across our fleet. These measures have been introduced across our coaches to ensure the safety of our colleagues and customers during Covid19 and can be viewed via the link below.
