Covid 19 FAQ'S
What is classed as a face covering?
A face covering should cover the mouth and nose while allowing the wearer to breathe comfortably and can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head to give a snug fit. It should remain in place of its own accord.
Do children need to wear a face covering on board?
Children under 11 years of age will not be required to do so. Children aged over 11 years old will be asked to wear a face covering.
However, some leeway will be required for children who may find this distressing or difficult and may therefore naturally fall into an exception of not wearing a face covering.
Are there any exceptions for wearing a face covering?
Yes, exceptions will apply to any customers who have a disability or medical condition that prevents them from wearing a face covering.
We ask that the person who makes the booking informs us prior to travelling if there will be any passengers travelling without a face covering. The driver will then be informed of any customers boarding without a face covering due to their medical condition or disability.
