Students are being asked to make sure their Avanchicards are topped up as cash isn't accepted.

All passengers on board are being recommended to:

  • Wear a mask or some sort of face covering
  • Keep windows open at all times to aid ventilation
  • Carry hand sanitiser to use on the bus
  • Wash their hands before and after travelling

"We are limiting vehicles to 50% of their seated capacity and are displaying signage showing our recommended seating plan. With only a small amount of students going back next week, availability on buses is not expected to be a problem but we will continue to monitor capacities as more students return to school.

"Our vehicles have all been thoroughly cleaned and sanitised and this will continue after every morning and afternoon run, focusing on the areas that are touched the most such as the ticket machine, handles, push buttons and seat backs." - Kevin Hart, LibertyBus Director.

Year 6, 10 and 12 students can return from 8 June.

We put forward Channel 103 listener questions to the Education Minister and Director General of Children, Young People, Education and Skills, which you can watch here.
