Your safety is our priority

  • Our entire bus fleet is sanitized daily and buses are being cleaned more frequently.
  • Air purifiers are being used on buses at different intervals throughout the day.
  • Protective screens have been installed on all driver cabins to keep everyone safe.
  • Passengers must wear face masks on public transport. Please wear a face mask before boarding the bus and keep the face mask on throughout the journey.
  • We have limited the standing capacity on buses to enable social distancing. Please do not board the bus if the driver indicates that full capacity has been reached.
  • Most of our buses have two doors to facilitate boarding. Please use the front door to enter the bus and the back door to exit, when available.
  • Prepaid travel cards reduce the need for contact with cash, while also offering better value.
  • Contactless payment cards can be used on a number of buses on busy routes. These buses have stickers indicating that contactless payment is available onboard.
  • If paying by cash, passengers must have the exact fare of €2 per ticket. Drivers are not able to give change.
  • All our buses are all equipped with CCTV, allowing us to monitor the service to see that safety measures are being observed.
