The NBus timetable returns to its normal schedule at Level 2

Contactless payment using Bee Card is preferred, but cash will be accepted. Registered Bee Cards will also be used for contact tracing – so please remember to tag on and off. Payment will be by Bee Card only, and top-ups should be made to your card at the Beecard website.

Physical distancing does not need to be observed on board public transport services at Alert Level 2. However, passengers are still encouraged to physically distance where possible. Additional cleaning will be carried out on the buses.

Passengers are required to scan the COVID-19 QR codes displayed on the bus, which are unique to each bus route.

A reminder that bus drivers, staff, and passengers are required to wear face coverings at all Alert Levels unless there is a medical exemption. Drivers and passengers of small passenger vehicle services such as taxis are required to wear masks.
