You can help control coronavirus and travel safely by walking and cycling, if you can. Where this is not possible, use public transport or drive.
You should not travel at all if you:
- are experiencing any coronavirus symptoms
- are self-isolating as a result of coronavirus symptoms or sharing a household or support bubble with somebody with symptoms
- have been advised by the NHS test and trace service that you should self-isolate
The advice for travelling on public transport is the same whether you are travelling by bus, coach, train, tram, ferry or aeroplane (see diagram above).
You must also wear a face covering when travelling and in enclosed areas of transport hubs from which passenger services operate. Such as airports, rail stations and terminals, ports and terminals, bus, coach and tram stations and terminals.
If you do not wear a face covering in these settings you will be breaking the law and could be fined £100, or £50 if you pay the fine within 14 days. These laws apply while you are in England and when you arrive in England from another part of the UK.
