Transport for Wales has issued a message urging the public to follow all travel safer advice and act responsibly to help ‘Keep Wales Safe’.

From today some outdoor sites and open-air spaces, such as heritage attractions, parks and gardens.

The ‘Stay Local’ restriction has also been eased by Welsh Government and is being replaced by an interim all-Wales travel area.

This will remain in place until April 12, subject to the public health situation.

For the next two weeks, only those with a reasonable excuse, such as work, will be able to travel into or out of Wales.

With these restrictions being eased TfW is reminding those using public transport that they have a fundamental responsibility to follow guidelines, adhere to social distancing and plan their journeys in advance.

TfW is also highlighting that there are still restrictions in place cross-border between Wales and England.

The company is also asking rail customers to use Capacity Checker – an online portal that allows customers to check before they travel to see which trains have most space available for COVID-19 safety.

Leyton Powell, TfW Safety and Sustainability Director said: “The safety of customers and colleagues is our top priority and throughout the whole pandemic we’ve implemented a detailed programme to ensure the public are safe.

“With certain restrictions now easing, it’s important to understand that there is also a responsibility on our customers.

“Please follow all our travel safer advice including wearing a face covering, using hand-sanitiser, following our queuing and one-way systems but most importantly plan-ahead for your journey and please don’t use public transport if you have any COVID-19 symptoms.

“If using our rail services, please use capacity checker and consider when the safest time is to travel and then plan accordingly.”
