Public transport operators urge avoiding unnecessary travel during Coronavirus outbreakPublished 07 April 2020 by Matt McDonald

With that in mind, below is some of the advice from our public transport operator members on using their services.
Simply by staying home and avoiding unnecessary travel, you’re supporting key workers and saving lives.

The message is simple.
1. Shop for basic necessities
2. One form of exercise a day
3. For medical/care needs, or to help a vulnerable person
4. To travel to/from work, only if it is a necessity.#StayHomeSaveLives pic.twitter.com/9ceqOUS0V8

Please don't make journeys unless you absolutely have to! If you do, help each other stay safe by keeping a two meter distance from other people including at bus stops and stations.
