Keep Wales Safe – wear a face covering on public transport unless you’re exempt.
Current Welsh Government guidance is to stay home, save lives and travel only if your journey’s essential.
These restrictions will help reduce the spread of coronavirus and apply from 18:00 on Friday 23 October 2020 to 00:01 on Monday 9 November 2020.
Please use public transport if it’s your only option for essential travel and don’t make unnecessary journeys or travel if you have any coronavirus symptoms.
During this period:
- please stay at home unless you have a reasonable excuse such as for caring responsibilities or for work if you can’t work at home.
- only travel if your journey’s essential.
- please check before you travel as TfW will be running a reduced number of rail services and some services may also change or be cancelled at short notice.
- rail services from Wales to England or those operated by TfW in England will not change.
If you need to make an essential journey between Wales and England, please remember that different regulations and guidance may be in place in the different countries of the UK. You must follow this guidance.

About Transport for Wales
Transport for Wales exists to drive forward the Welsh Government’s vision of a high quality, safe, integrated, affordable and accessible transport network that the people of Wales are proud of. Transport for Wales is key to delivering the Welsh Government’s key themes as set out in Prosperity for All: The National Strategy.
For Wales and its people to thrive, we need to be connected – to one another, to the services we need and to open up new opportunities. Our work focuses on making these connections happen – by planning, commissioning and managing efficient transport networks and by drawing on the very best skills from across industry, government and society.
We are creating a transport network fit for the future that contributes to the long-term sustainability of Wales and those communities connected to us.
Reduced journey times, more services and better connections are just some of the benefits you can expect from Metro, the exciting new transport system that will transform the way we all travel Wales and the borders.
Work on the South Wales Metro is already underway and we’re developing options to improve and enhance the transport network in North Wales and Swansea Bay.
