 13 May 2020 - Guidance update for Operators and Passengers

The Government have published transport guidance for operators and passengers in England.

The guide for operators will help organisations, agencies and others (such as self-employed transport providers) understand how to provide safer workplaces and services for themselves, their workers and passengers across all modes of private and public transport. Each transport provider will need to translate the principles and examples in this guidance into specific actions.
