Update 4.9.20

Please note that Government guidance regarding the wearing of face coverings in schools has changed since our Return to School plans were first published. We are now encouraging our students to wear face coverings as they move around in communal areas. It has also been brought to our attention that we have some students who are feeling vulnerable in lessons without their face coverings on. Students are therefore permitted to wear them in lessons if they feel this will help support them with their learning

Face coverings to become mandatory on public transport - GOV.UK

Reminder! Don't forget to wear a face covering if you are travelling on public transport. Face coverings should not be used by children under the age of 3 or those who may find it difficult to manage them correctly.

Update 17.6.20

Useful information about how public transport is working at this time can be found by visiting the following sites

https://www.arrivabus.co.uk/coronavirus

http://www.merseytravel.gov.uk/Coronavirus 

https://twitter.com/Merseytravel 

Current Key Advice
Plan ahead - social distancing means that bus, rail and ferry services have limited space
Face coverings - If you need to use public transport, please wear a face covering
Leave plenty of time – you might not make the service you planned to get and may need to wait for the next one
Check timetables - online before and on your day of travel and be prepared for changes
Keep cycling and walking if you can – ease the pressure on transport, stay fit and healthy and help keep our air clean
If you must travel, arrive early at the station, stop, or terminal in good time – this is to avoid disappointment as there may be queues
Buy your tickets in advance - to avoid queues on the day
Consider multi modal ticket - such as Saveaways as these will give you more options
Please pay by contactless - if you can’t then have the right money ready as services can’t provide change
Please maintain 2m social distancing wherever possible with respect and patience - to keep yourself and others safe
Practice good hygiene – avoid touching surfaces, your face, and wash your hands properly both before and after your journey
Please be kind and respectful to transport staff – they are working really hard to get you to where you need to be
Be patient - as there will be social distancing measures in place both on services and in waiting areas such as bus stops, stations and ferry terminals

Arriva has also asked us to share information about how parents can purchase Student Saver tickets which might be of use when school openings return to normal. Visit www.arrivabus.co.uk/student-direct-debit for more information
