The events of the last year have made people less confident about using public transport, particularly buses.

Whether you’re a frequent bus user, or haven’t hopped on board for a while, be assured that Devon’s transport providers are keen for you to feel comfortable and confident during your journey.

While no situation is risk free, there are actions we can all take to protect ourselves and others around us when travelling on public transport. For example opening windows for ventilation, sanitising your hands regularly and covering you mouth and nose with a tissue or the inside of your elbow when coughing or sneezing. You could also plan your journey for quieter times of day or use routes and stops that aren’t so busy.

The legal requirement to wear face coverings on public transport in Devon has been lifted. However, the government expects and recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded areas such as public transport.

This week we’ve been speaking to people as they travel on the bus and find out their stories! Come onboard and meet Wade, a key worker at RD&E.
