Trips to and from Devizes MUST BE BOOKED in advance as, due to social distancing, the bus can only take 5 passengers. It will not be possible to guarantee a seat if you turn up without a booking. Each passenger must bring and wear a face covering whilst on the bus. These cannot be provided. Unfortunately, we cannot allow you to travel unless you wear your face covering. If you wish to wear gloves, please bring these with you. Only certain seats on the bus will be used and these will be marked. Please fill seats towards the rear of the bus first and, when leaving, those nearest the door will exit first. Hand sani??ser will be available.
