Emergency Timetables due to Coronavirus

Is your journey necessary?

To help keep yourself and your fellow passengers safe, you should not travel if you:

Before you travel, consider if your journey is necessary and if you can, stay local. Try to reduce your travel. This will help keep the transport network running and allow people who need to make essential journeys to travel. You can reduce your travel by:

  • working from home where possible
  • shopping less frequently and shopping locally

The English National Concessionary Scheme passes are valid at all times (including before 09:30 hours) on all Compass services, until further notice.


Important information:

We are currently unable to reinstate most of our services as we are awaiting restart funding from the Government via the local councils.

It is understandable that in the current crisis the Government are asking people not to use public transport, however, this has created a problem whereby we will not be able to cover the costs of running buses without the normal level of revenue from passengers.

We are working hard with the local councils to try and secure funding, at which time we will return the services that are needed the most.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused during these unprecedented times – we will keep this website and our Twitter feed up to date.

Services that are running are subject to emergency timetables, as below:
