You may be aware that it is compulsory to wear a face covering while on public transport, including our local Stagecoach buses, but you must now also wear a face covering while in an indoor transport hub, including enclosed bus station areas. A face covering can include a mask, bandana or a scarf. As long as it covers your nose and mouth and ties snugly behind your head, you should be able to breathe comfortably when wearing it.
Some people are exempt from wearing a face covering and feel more comfortable showing something that says they do not have to wear one. This could be in the form of an exemption card, which you can access on the Government website, where you can find full guidance on travelling safely. Alternatively, you can apply for an exemption card via the Stagecoach Journey Assistance Card Scheme. The Stagecoach drivers are aware of the exemption card options and so will accept whichever card you choose.
