COVID-19 Update for all Excelbus passengers: 

This is an update for all our customers who travel aboard our Excelbus services. 

From Wednesday 25th and Saturday 28th March some of our services will be reduced due to decreasing passenger numbers becuase of COVID-19. We are still running a number of services (at a reduced timetable) in order to keep critical workers moving.

Please understand that we are doing our best with all our bus services in these exceptional circumstances; and due to the changing situation it is not possible for us, or indeed the local authority to update the printed timetables at bus stops. Please disregard these and follow the guidance below for all our routes. We apologise for any inconvenience caused at what is a difficult time for all of us. Thank you.

Easter Weekend - Please note we are running reduced limited services based on our normal Saturday workings on Good Friday and Easter Saturday with no services on Easter Sunday or Monday. 

Please see below for specific updates

In light of the current Coronavirus situation, we would like to update you as follows. Johnsons have extensive cleaning regimes that maintain high levels of hygiene for passengers to protect the health and well-being of their customers and employees. In order to support increased personal hygiene on our buses, we are putting strengthened measures in place to enhance sanitisation and focused cleaning; this includes but is not limited to:

  • The use of hand sanitiser gel on all buses to help passengers clean their hands frequently. 
  • Operating an even more robust vehicle cleaning schedule, with regular use of anti-bacterial wipes on hard surfaces and handles. 
  • Staff are being encouraged to maintain good hand, respiratory and personal hygiene by employing the 'Catch it. Bin it. Kill it.' ethos.
  • A well-coordinated emergency management system in place at all times. 
  • Finally, the single most important precaution that everyone can take is to observe good personal hygiene, including washing your hands regularly. 

These regimes are carefully monitored and reviewed, and we monitor operations daily, introducing enhancements as necessary. We would like to encourage all our bus customers to use the gel provided on our buses and of course, wash your hands regularly. 

Public transport provides a vital role in keeping the country running and ensuring critical sector workers in the health and emergency services can fulfil their roles. This is a fast-evolving situation, but for now the current Government advice is that people are able to continue to use public transport as they go about their lives, following regular guidance from Public Health England. 

Our team of dedicated bus drivers know how important their role is in providing our customers with a reliable & safe mode of transport and we thank you for your support and cooperation during this difficult time.
