Travelling in the UK
In England, face coverings are no longer required by law.The government suggests that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with other people you do not normally meet - see the latest Governent Guidelines "Living safely with respiratory infections, including COVID-19" at GOV.UK.
Public transport operators are free to set their own requirements for wearing face coverings and you should check with the operator of the service you are using before travelling. For example face coverings must be worn for the full duration of all journeys on the TfL network (London Undergound, bus, tram, DLR, London Overground and TfL Rail networks; Dial-a-Ride services; the Emirates Air Line; and the Woolwich ferry), including inside stations and bus stations - see details here.
