COVID-19: Travel Safe Measures

We’re implementing a range of safety measures to mitigate the risk of COVID-19.

The health, safety and well-being of our passengers and staff is our number one priority. In line with guidance from transport regulators as well as the Australian Government we have developed a COVID Safe Business Plan to provide the safest possible travel experience.

Before you begin planning, it is important to note that for a group to travel safely, any person feeling unwell or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms including cough, fever, sore throat, fatigue, and shortness of breath should remain at home and not travel.

Everybody in the group should follow social distancing guidelines, including the organisers approved seating plan, good respiratory and hand hygiene practices, as well as provide their contact information to assist in contact tracing efforts, should they be required.
