Face coverings to become compulsory
29/06/20

Face coverings will shortly be compulsory on all SPSV services.

Wearing a face covering is already strongly recommended. Now it is to become mandatory.

As public health authorities have advised, face coverings can help prevent someone who may not even know they are infected from making other people sick, and the use of face coverings will help protect both passengers and drivers alike.

A detailed regulation on this is being prepared by government departments and NTA is involved with that process.  That regulation will look at issues like enforcement and exemptions.

We will keep you updated.

Will we be allowed to charge extra is we have to supply a mask to passengers (who forget or refuse to wear one)?

Does that mean we're not public service vehicles?
Or is it that the regulation hasn't been finalised yet?

I think the erm is looking towards the new normal. The trade (both drivers and bosses) have made it quite clear that it does not want to be a public service going forward. The authorities ought to take that on board and look to promoting alternatives such as walking, cycling and car share schemes. The trade itself has been front and centre in highlighting it's inherent health risks. Logically those risks place a burden on the NHSE and, as such, ought to be discouraged. A levy similar to that on tobacco products could be sensible?
