CPT reacts to the announcement that face coverings will be mandatory on public transport 05/06/2020

From CPT's chief executive, Graham Vidler:

"Buses are already safe to use as operators have introduced enhanced cleaning regimes alongside other measures including restricting capacity, but making face coverings mandatory will give more passengers the confidence to travel.

We will need passengers to work with us and wear their own face covering to comply with this new requirement.

We will also work with the Government on its implementation, including increasing capacity in the network and maximising the value of the bus in safely restarting our economy and daily life."
