Participants should take particular care to follow social distancing guidelines (maintaining a minimum of 1m distance). In addition to those guidelines, the following principles should be observed to ensure you meet people in a way that minimises the risk of spreading infection:

  •  limit the time you spend interacting with people from outside your household or support bubble to the activity which you are partaking
  • limit the number of different activities which you partake in succession to reduce the potential chain of transmission
  • follow strict social distancing guidelines from people outside your household or support bubble

TfL’s transport plans for return to school in September

Children and young people are being encouraged to travel to school by walking, cycling or scooting wherever possible. Transport for London (TfL) is also planning to make important changes to the bus network for those who cannot do so.

From 1 September TfL is planning to:

  • Add over 230 extra buses to the network to bolster some of the busiest low-frequency routes for schoolchildren to travel on, including adding more vehicles to our existing school bus services
  • In addition, designate some existing regular buses as School Services, which would be prioritised for school travel and would operate at full seated capacity, as is permitted by Government guidelines for school bus services. Signs would clearly indicate that these are School Services and they are planned to operate on:

­        – ​Around half of all buses during school travel times on certain high-frequency routes

­        – All the extra buses TfL is adding to lower-frequency routes

­       – All buses on TfL’s existing school services
