Stay safe and keep moving
With further easing of Government lockdown restrictions coming from Monday 17 May, we’ve pulled together some information to help you make the most of the increased leisure activities that will be available, including the reopening of museums, other cultural attractions and indoor dining.
A near-normal service continues across the public transport network and a wide range of active travel options are available, including the recently launched cycle hire scheme and e-scooter trial.
The West Midlands is Open for Business, and the network is ready to take you where you’re going.
If you can, walk or cycle for short journeys. When you're using public transport remember to:
- Avoid travelling at busy times
- Wear a face covering (unless exempt)
- Keep your distance where possible
- Use hand sanitiser and wash your hands as soon as possible
What's being done to keep you safe
The safety of customers and staff is everyone's top priority. So, in line with government guidance, we have worked with operators to put in place extra measures:
- Extra cleaning on buses, trains and trams
- Measures to help guide you to keep your distance
- The safer travel partnership is working to enforce the use of face coverings
You should try not to share a vehicle with those outside your household or support bubble.
If you need to, there is safety guidance for you to follow.
You must wear a face covering when in a transport hub or onboard, unless exempt. We’ve pulled together lots of information on how to make your own face covering, how to dispose of one and where and when you need one.
