Bus and train service updates

West Yorkshire Metro is strongly urging people to consider whether their journey is necessary before using public transport.

West Yorkshire Metro has published an update on transport capacity urging people to only use their bus and train services for essential travel.

The service remains focused on ensuring key workers and those who need to travel to work can get where they need to be during the COVID-19 pandemic.

To maintain social-distancing for passengers and transport staff it remains essential that people only travel where necessary and work from home where possible.

Those who do need to travel are being asked to pay by contactless and wear a face covering where possible, wash their hands before and after their journey and avoid peak times or consider cycling and walking as an alternative to using the car or public transport.

Bus services are currently subject to short notice changes in response to the COVID-19 situation. This may mean our bus stop, real time and journey planner information may not be as accurate as normal. Please check for the latest travel information on this page.
