Keep Wales Safe

Face coverings

Wearing a face covering on public transport remains law in Wales. You must continue to wear a face covering on all our services for the duration of your journey, unless you’re exempt.  

You must wear a face covering on public transport, at stations, on platforms, in waiting rooms and in train station car parks to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus to other travellers and staff unless you’re exempt. Face coverings are mandatory where physical distancing can be difficult to achieve such as on public transport. 

Please bring a face covering with you and put it on before:

  • going into a train station car park
  • going into a station
  • going onto a platform
  • using a waiting room
  • getting on your bus or train

Children under the age of 11, people with breathing difficulties or people with a physical or mental illness or impairment or disability don’t have to wear a face covering. Children over the age of 11 must wear a face covering unless they’re disabled or suffer from breathing difficulties. 

The Welsh government's full list of exceptions can be found here. You can find information about our new personalised exemption note scheme here.
