Public transport

The COVID-safe public transport plan outlines measures to ensure the health and safety of customers and transport staff when travelling on public transport.

We all have a part to play when travelling on public transport to help support everyone's health and safety.

Staying healthy on public transport

You have a key role to play when you travel on public transport. Everyone needs to take responsibility and follow three simple steps to help support everyone's health and safety while travelling.

Leave a gap

When travelling, leave a gap between you and others where possible by:

  • standing away from others while at a stop or platform
  • leaving space between you and the person in front as you enter the vehicle
  • sitting away from other people
  • waiting for a later service if required in busy periods.

Adjust your travel

Consider options to adjust your travel including:

  • travelling outside peak times
  • catching an earlier service or waiting for a later service
  • walking or cycling between home and work or for part of your journey
  • discussing options with your employer such as working from home more often, staggering your work days or your start and finish times.

Keeping it clean

Follow Queensland Health's advice regarding good hand and respiratory hygiene, including:

  • staying home if you are unwell
  • cleaning hands with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rubs
  • covering your nose and mouth with a tissue or flexed elbow when coughing or sneezing
  • avoid contact with anyone who has symptoms such as fever, a cough, sore throat, fatigue, and shortness of breath.

Follow the measures we've introduced to help stop the spread of COVID-19, including cashless payments and rear door boarding.
