Wales is in ‘Alert level 4’‘’lockdown.
You must stay at home and only travel for essential purposes.
Public transport should only be used for limited purposes which include:
• to go to work if you can’t work at home.
• to go to school, college or for education
• for essential shopping or medical needs
• to provide essential care
• to escape a risk of illness or injury, such as for victims or people at risk of domestic abuse
Most of this guidance is set in law so can be enforced by the police or local authority enforcement officers.
What is classed as essential journeys?
The Welsh Government’s guidance confirms that the following reasons are classed as essential for you to travel by public transport:
to get to and from work, if you can’t work from home or it’s your only means of travelling
to get essential food or medical supplies
to support someone who is vulnerable if no-one else can do so
to take your children to and from an education or care setting
We are asking that customers use our services for essential travel only. To see more guidance on what this means visit the gov.wales website.
Unfortunately, due to the speed in which changes are happening, the Journey Planner tool on the Morris Travel website may not be displaying accurate information. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Our customer services team will be ready to help with any queries you may have by calling 01267 235090, or you can send us an enquiry via our online form.
We hope you and your families stay well during this difficult time, and we look forward to welcoming you all back on our buses very soon.

You must wear a face covering while travelling, as set out in this guidance.
A face covering should cover your mouth and nose while allowing you to breathe comfortably. It is important to use face coverings properly and wash your hands before putting them on and after taking it off.
We do understand that some people may not be able to wear a face covering, for example very young children, people with breathing difficulties and people whose disabilities makes it difficult for them to wear a face covering.
A face covering is not the same as the surgical masks or respirators used by healthcare and other workers as part of personal protective equipment (PPE). These should continue to be reserved for those who need them to protect against risks in their workplace, such as health and care workers, and those in industrial settings, like those exposed to dust hazards.
The evidence suggests that wearing a face covering does not protect you, but it may protect others if you are infected but have not yet developed symptoms.
We thank you for your assistance in helping us to keep you our passengers and drivers safe.
CONTACTLESS PAYMENTS ONLY
ACCEPTED ON OUR SERVICES
Due to the extremely easy way this virus is passed on, please be advised that the service bus driver has full discretion to refuse passengers to travel on the bus if they feel that there is a risk to theirs or their passengers health and safety.
We hope that you understand the reasoning and help us in keeping the virus at bay and protecting everyone.
If you have any symptoms, please contact NHS direct and self isolate.
