We’ve got a plan to provide a COVID Safe regional transport network as restrictions ease and the numbers on our network increases, and more people return to work and school.
[ul][li]We have implemented measures to ensure the safety of our staff and customers especially those travelling long distances. NSW TrainLink regional train and coach customers are being booked in a way to accommodate physical distancing where possible.[ul][li]Bookings with two adults on the same ticket will be allocated physical distant seats and may request on board staff to allow them to sit together.[/li][li]Bookings of one adult and one child from same family are seated together.[/li][li]Bookings of three or more family members on the same ticket will be seated together, groups of more than 4, will be accommodated directly across the aisle if possible.[/li][li]Groups of people not from the same household should be advised that physical distancing seating will be applied. Unfortunately, due to the reduced capacity, we cannot guarantee that large groups will be able to be accommodated on the same day or on the same service.[/li][/ul][/li][li]Once services have reached capacity, please consider an alternative option or travel on an alternative day.[/li][li]Green dots are being used on trains, buses, light rail and ferries, including our intercity fleet, to show customers the safest places to sit and stand, and encourage them to maintain physical distancing on our services.[/li][li]We’re also increasing messaging to encourage customers, in particular those living in the larger regional centres, to rethink the way they commute and travel, e.g. avoiding travelling in the peak, using more active transport such as cycling and walking, and using trip planning apps to better plan their journeys with regard to capacity.[/li][li]Our number one priority remains keeping our staff and customers safe as they move across NSW.[/li][li]In some regional areas, bus stops could be in remote locations and services less frequent. We are working closely with bus operators so enough services are available to make physical distancing possible while not leaving anyone behind. In these cases we will be helping customers to keep as much space as possible between each other, and practise good hygiene.[/li][/ul]
We have made small amendments to our Buffet service in line with advice from NSW Health in response to the Coronavirus. The changes include:
[ul][li]All hot food is being heated at the time of service[/li][li]We no longer sell items that are not pre-packaged[/li][li]We will no longer accept reusable cups[/li][li]Water fountains are no longer available on Regional trains[/li][li]Social distancing applies while waiting to be served[/li][li]Payment is preferred by credit card or EFTPOS where possible[/li][/ul]
