New guidance for passengers and operators in Scotland has been produced to help prepare for the lifting of some lockdown restrictions. The travel guidance is published as part of the Transport Transition Plan
The guidance advises passengers about when and how to safely access public transport through good hand hygiene, respecting physical distancing, using face coverings and avoiding busier times.
It also confirms that face coverings are mandatory from 22 June on public transport as well as in stations, enclosed ferry terminals and airports. Further information on face coverings and exemptions.
The plan is clear that where people can continue to work from home, they should. It also encourages employers to offer, flexible start and finish times for workers. People are also encouraged to walk and cycle more to help ease the number of people accessing public transport.
