Face coverings on public transport

From Monday 15 June, wearing a face covering on public transport in England became mandatory. However, some people may be exempt. 

The requirement to wear a face covering does not apply:

  • if you have a physical or mental illness or impairment, or a disability that means you cannot put on, wear or remove a face covering
  • if putting on, wearing or removing a face covering would cause you severe distress
  • if you are travelling with, or providing assistance to, someone who relies on lip reading to communicate
  • if you are travelling to avoid injury or escape the risk of harm, and you do not have a face covering with you
  • if you need to remove it during your journey to avoid harm or injury or the risk of harm or injury to yourself or others
  • if you need to eat, drink, or take medication you can remove your face covering
  • if you are asked to remove your face covering by a police officer or other official, for example to check your railcard
  • to children under the age of 11
  • to a constable, police community support officer, emergency responder (e.g. paramedic) or fire officer acting in the course of their duty

If you are exempt from wearing a face covering, please tell the driver as you board. You do not have to explain why you are exempt.

For those who do not have to wear a face covering, we have produced Journey Assistance cards that can be shown to drivers when boarding public transport. These can be found and downloaded below.
