The Government have asked us to wear face coverings on public transport to help us all travel safely.
Public transport includes buses and trains. Taxis are not public transport, but some taxis may ask you to wear a face covering.
Are you exempt from wearing a face covering?
Some people can’t wear a face mask or covering because of a disability or severe distress. Keepsafe have designed these D.I.Y cards to help deal with public situations that might happen.
