Bus Éireann and Expressway customers are being advised that capacity will be reduced to 25% during Level 5 restrictions.
The Government advice for Level 5 restrictions is that public transport should be avoided.
With one in four seats available, passengers are being asked to keep seats reserved for essential workers, to observe capacity signage on board vehicles and continue the mandatory wearing of face coverings on all services.
Importantly, passengers are advised under no circumstance to use public transport if they are experiencing any Covid-19 related symptoms, nor should public transport be used to travel to or from a Covid-19 testing centre.
“Customers will see the capacity limit of each vehicle clearly marked on the door,” said Allen Parker, Bus Éireann Chief Customer Officer. “We are working hard to try to provide transport for essential journeys and frontline workers, as we have done throughout the pandemic. Whilst capacity on-board is now limited to 25% ,there will be no change to our timetables at this time.”
