NCT is good to go

Nottingham City Transport has achieved Visit Britain’s official industry standard, which confirms that we are following industry and Government guidance on COVID-19, social distancing and cleanliness.

This new standard is a sign of businesses being able to demonstrate that they’re adhering to the COVID-19 guidance issued by the government for their sector, have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment and that they have the required processes in place.

Measures we have in place include:

  • Running a full timetable on all services, providing maximum capacity for people to distance
  • Launch of Capacity Checker on the NCT website and NCTX Buses app, where customers can see how quiet or busy their bus is
  • Safer Travel Guidance available on buses, at stops and online, with printed signage on buses and regularly changing audio announcements, reminding customers about the requirements
  • Closing off of some seats on board buses for social distancing
  • Enhanced cleaning on board, paying extra attention to the parts most commonly touched (e.g. bells, poles, card readers)
  • Issuing COVID-19 guidance to our employees and providing them with hand sanitiser, facial coverings, cleaning wipes and gloves to keep themselves and our customers safe
  • Assessment of all NCT premises and making changes to ensure they are COVID secure
  • Regularly reviewing and implementing government advice and guidance

Thank you to all of our customers and employees for their continued support.

Stay safe by following the Safer Travel Guidance:
