Bus services across Nottingham will return to their normal timetables from Sunday, June 28.
Nottingham City Transport (NCT) has announced that it will significantly increase the number of buses and provide maximum capacity for people to be able to space out when they travel.
Since lockdown was introduced on 23rd March, the number of people using NCT buses has fallen by 90%.
Although NCT has said its NightBus and Uni routes will not be returning on this date.
Announcing the changes, David Astill NCT Commercial and Operations Director said, “With restrictions being gradually relaxed and the government providing financial support to bus operators over the next few months, we are now able to return our services to normal from 28th June”.
He continued, “Customers returning to our services can travel safely by following the Safer Travel Guidance for Customers. This includes boarding one at a time, sitting in a window seat, washing or sanitising their hands regularly and by following the mandatory requirement to wear a facial covering on public transport from 15th June”.
Customers are being asked to familiarise themselves with the Safer Travel Guidance at nctx.co.uk and can make use of NCT’s recently launched online “Capacity Checker” to see how quiet or busy their bus will be.
NCT services will continue to operate as exact fare only, with no change available from the driver.
Trentbarton has not yet clarified when its services will resume as normal.
