Still don’t understand what regulations apply when it comes to travelling during lockdown level 3? Don’t worry, we have you covered with our easy to navigate Travel Lowdown in Lockdown Guide which will highlight the basic all you need to know about travelling in a bus during the Level 3 Lockdown.
When making a bus booking, passengers won’t need to show a travel permit for work, school, medical reasons, funeral or moving but will still need to be in possession of such a permit. Should a passenger not be able to provide a travel permit, they will not be entitled to a refund should they be denied boarding.
