Coronavirus (COVID-19): safer travel guidance for passengers

Walking, cycling, and travelling in vehicles or on public transport during the coronavirus outbreak.

You can help control coronavirus and travel safely by:

  • working from home where possible
  • shopping locally and less often
  • considering all other forms of transport, such as cycling and walking, before using public transport
  • avoiding the busiest times and routes
    keeping your distance
  • when your travel, where possible
  • washing or sanitising your hands regularly

You should not travel at all if you:

  • are experiencing any coronavirus symptoms
  • are self-isolating as a result of coronavirus symptoms or sharing a household or support bubble with somebody with symptoms
  • are clinically extremely vulnerable and cannot shield during your journey
  • have been advised by the NHS test and trace service that you should self-isolate

If you have any symptoms of coronavirus you should self-isolate at home and arrange to have a test to see if you have coronavirus.

If anyone in your household or support bubble has symptoms of coronavirus you should self-isolate.
