Covid-19 Travel Advice
On 9 August, Scotland moved beyond Level 0, which means that physical distancing measures were removed.
As we continue to welcome more customers back to using our services, there is still travel advice in place to ensure that everyone feels safe on the tram.
Here's some key messages on how we're helping you to stay safe:
Wear a face covering (unless exempt), cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing and maintain good hand hygiene.
Use smart ticketing or contactless payment and clearly present your mticket, smartcard or ticket to the Ticket Inspector which will be checked without contact.
If the tram feels too busy, do not board or disembark and wait for the next one.
To promote good ventilation, all doors open automatically at every stop and all windows are kept open.
Our trams, tram stops and equipment are subject to an enhanced cleaning regime.
Be kind to our colleagues and other customers.
We have followed all of the Scottish Government, Transport Scotland and governing bodies guidance to ensure that our business is a safe environment for our customers and colleagues.
