Stagecoach continues to reassure passengers with its latest campaign video.

The 30-second video demonstrates the extensive cleaning measures Stagecoach is taking to give passengers confidence on its buses. It includes footage of staff members performing disinfections of vehicles. The cleaning regime includes deep cleaning, contactless payments and mandatory use of face coverings except for those exempt.

UK government advice now recommends the use of public transport again. Stagecoach services in England, Scotland and Wales have been accredited with the Good to Go scheme, recognising its work to meet COVID-19 safe operating guidelines.

Other measures include the Busy Bus feature on the Stagecoach app, using passenger data to provide indicators for quieter services.

“Public transport continues to have a very important role to play in helping to fully restart the economy and in tackling climate change, poor air quality and road congestion in our towns and cities. Stagecoach and other bus operators are talking to the government about how we can encourage greater bus use as part of the country’s green recovery,” it said.
