Wearing a face mask on public transport
When travelling on public transport you must wear a fitted face mask covering your nose and mouth and ensure you wear it for your entire journey. Wearing a face mask helps keep you and others safe.
Remember to put on your fitted face mask before getting on trains, buses and trams. You must also wear a mask on platforms and tram and bus stops when you can't keep a safe distance from others.
There are exemptions for children under 12 years, individuals with breathing difficulties, and those who have physical conditions that make it difficult to wear a face mask.
All passengers are being asked to do their part to stay safe on public transport. That means:
- maintaining physical distance from others where possible
- practising good hygiene such as washing hands often
- coughing and sneezing into your elbow or tissue
- staying at home if you are unwell, and
- getting tested if you have the mildest of symptoms
