Yellow Buses will be enhancing timetables across the network week commencing Monday 15th June following a loosening of the lock down.
With some schools, shops and work places reopening, it is anticipated that more passengers will be using the services.
Yellows’ cleaning regime continues at intensified levels with all poles, hand rails, seats and other key areas of its vehicles disinfected regularly.
On board, the vehicles social distancing measures continue to be in place where some seats have been taken out of action to create space.
Details of the revised timetable are available on the Yellow Buses’ website as well as on its app and on most bus stops.
David Squire, managing director, said: “We have continued to provide a safe, reliable service for key workers throughout the lockdown period, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our staff for keeping the wheels turning!’’
‘’We have space on board our vehicles for people to travel, the enhanced timetables with social distancing and intensive cleaning regimes mean that we continue to offer safe travel across the conurbation.’’
‘’As more shops and work places reopen we are ensuring that people can travel’’
‘’We would ask customers to remember to socially distance whilst waiting for the bus, whilst boarding and whilst on board. If possible, we would like customers to pay with the app or contactless, and use a face covering whilst on board.’’
‘’We monitor loadings on our services on a daily basis, and where capacity becomes an issue we will employ bigger vehicles or additional journeys’’
‘’We want Yellow Buses to continue to be part of the transport solution across the conurbation’’
