COVID-19 essential travel guidance

Advice from the Welsh Government

Keep Wales Safe

Wear a face covering on public transport unless you’re exempt.
Coronavirus has changed the way we all use public transport and we’re working hard so you can travel as safely as possible.
You must wear a face covering on public transport unless you’re exempt to help prevent the spread of coronavirus to other travellers and staff. Protect yourself and others.

Responsible travel
Please use public transport responsibly in these difficult times and help us to help you by following our simple Travel Safer advice.
You can find out more about Travel Safer as well as our promise to you here.
