Coronavirus: Travel information and advice

Dear parents, carers and students:

Transport for Greater Manchester have updated their travel information advice:

Please remind your child of the following guidance to allow for their safe travel to and from school:

  • Wear a face covering on-board and in stations and interchanges, unless you’re under 11 or you’re exempt for another reason.

  • Keep your distance where possible on the platform, stop, station and on-board.

  • Follow your school’s guidance and sit with other members of your own school bubble where possible.

  • Clean your hands regularly and carry your own hand sanitiser.

  • Use contactless payment, buying tickets online for smart cards or using mobile apps where possible, or use exact change only if you need to pay with cash.

  • Don’t board public transport if you, or a member of you household, has symptoms of coronavirus.

  • If a child develops symptoms while at school or college, the school will contact parents and they must return home. They should not travel home on public transport.
