Need to use the bus? Here are some new rules.

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

Using the bus is now free, but you'll have to register your details first.

Making trips free removes the need for drivers and passengers to touch cash or Busit cards, a statement said.

People who need the bus - for work or to get to places like the pharmacy or supermarket - now have to register their journey online using this form. You can also ring 0800 205 305.

This means that, if someone who turns out to have coronavirus uses the bus, health authorities will be able to trace people they may have been in contact with.

Busit passengers are also asked to sit in rows away from each other to keep their distance and give the bus driver some space.
