TfL steps-up bus services
Transport for London (TfL) is stepping-up bus service levels to make journeys as safe as possible for people who have no alternative other than to use public transport as national restrictions on movement are gradually lifted. TfL is now operating 85% of bus services and 75% of Tube services.
People who have no choice but to use public transport have been advised to wear face coverings and avoid the busiest times and locations. Bus passengers have been asked to observe social distancing at stops and bus stations wherever possible, to board buses through the middle doors and to allow other passengers to get on and off while maintaining social distancing. They have also been asked to make use of all available space, including the upper deck. If buses are very busy, customers are asked to wait for the next bus. TfL has deployed additional staff, including Compliance Policing and On-Street Officers, across the network and at bus stations to help with social distancing. Hundreds of officers from the British Transport Police are also out across the transport network where they are most needed, keeping customers and staff safe.
Additionally, the Congestion Charge and Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) have been reintroduced.
