Coronavirus (COVID-19): safer travel guidance for passengers during the coronavirus outbreak

COVID-19 Guidance

Even after you have received a vaccine, you should continue to follow this guidance on how to travel safely when using taxis or private hire vehicles.

Follow the advice of the operator and driver. For example, you may be asked to sit in the back left-hand seat if travelling alone. You may want to check with your taxi or private hire operator before travelling if they have put any additional measures in place.

The requirement to wear face coverings in law has been lifted. However, the government expects and recommends that people wear face coverings in crowded areas such as public transport. It is recommended you wear a face covering when using a taxi or private hire vehicle.

You should use contactless payment if possible, or find out if you can pay online in advance.

Where possible open windows for ventilation when in the vehicle.

Be aware of the surfaces you touch. Be careful not to touch your face. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or the inside of your elbow when coughing or sneezing.

When finishing your journey, wash your hands for at least 20 seconds or sanitise your hands as soon as possible.
