UPDATE FROM FIRST BUS ON INCREASING THE LEVEL OF SERVICE

I have received the information below from First Bus in respect of the above.

“Following recent guidance from the Government I want to update you on what we’re doing at First to keep you travelling safe. From the 31st May we are running far more buses to provide more seats for keyworkers and essential journeys. Full details and timetables are available on our website – please bear with us, it might take a few days to update all of the next bus and journey planner information.

Let’s look after each other
Even though we’re running more buses, we’ve got a reduced capacity on each bus so please allow plenty of time for your journey and travel at quieter times, so everyone can get where they need to go. If you can:

  • Pay in advance on the app or use contactless
  • Keep your distance and follow signage on board
  • Wear a face covering
  • Leaving windows open to aid ventilation

We have produced a short video to show some of the changes we have made to comply with the Governments new guidelines.

Keeping you informed and updated
Our telephone lines remain open if you do need to talk to us. Our operating hours are 9am-5pm Monday to Friday. Outside of these hours you can contact us via the contact form on our website. Our team will be monitoring Twitter at the weekends between 9am and 5pm and on weekdays between 7am and 7pm.
