Safety Steps for Travelling While Using Public Transport

While many people have chosen to avoid public transport since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, utilising these services may still be necessary for some people.

With that in mind, those who are still riding public transport should adhere to the following steps:

  1. Plan aheadResearch your trip before you embark, and be prepared for your plans to be altered both leading up to and during your journey.
  2. Wear a face covering—Most people are currently required by law to wear a face covering while using public transport. It’s worth noting that there are certain exemptions.
  3. Maintain distance—Social distancing has become second nature for many people at this point, but adhering to this precaution is of particular importance when in public settings with many strangers and frequently contacted surfaces.
  4. Avoid crowds—If possible, avoid travelling during peak hours, and use quieter and less crowded stations. If necessary, consider exiting public transport a stop early and enjoying a short walk to finish your journey.
  5. Clean up—Be sure to maintain hygiene after departing public transport. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitiser as soon as possible.
