COVID-19 Guidance for safer travel
Due to the COVID-19 situation the current advice is to only use public transport for essential journeys. Up to date advice available on the NI Direct website.
Face Coverings when using public transport
From the 10th July 2020 passengers using public transport services will be required to wear a face covering.
There are exemptions to these rules for disabled people who find wearing a face covering very difficult or impossible.
You can find out more about the new regulations and exemptions from the NI Direct website.
Changes to services
Translink has made a number of changes to the way services are provided in response to COVID-19 including:
- Reduced frequency timetables
- Physical / social distancing measures on vehicles and stations
- Installation of screens to protect passengers and drivers
- A “No Change” policy operating on all services
If you usually need assistance to use public transport you should continue to receive this during COVID-19 although the way it is provided may change.
If you have any concerns you should contact Translink before you travel.
Translink has developed a guide to using their services during COVID-19. To find out more visit the Translink website.
