Travel safely during Covid
During Covid, although public transport is safe to use, there are restrictions in place to keep users safe which is affecting capacity on both buses and trains. Bracknell Forest Council are therefore asking public transport users to consider the 4 Rs when planning their journey to work;
- Reduce – avoid unnecessary journeys
- Re-time – change travel patterns to avoid the traditional peak periods
- Re-mode – switch to active modes such as walking and cycling where feasible
- Re-route – avoid congested places where possible
Social distancing, face coverings and hand washing are all recommended (or mandatory) when using public transport
