Swindon’s Bus Company has moved to reassure passengers in-and-around the town that services will continue to run at normal levels. 
The operator reintroduced full service timetables over recent months, with various safety measures in place. Now, despite tier 4 status in Swindon, it will be business as usual for the bus network across the region. 
“We know the area will be hit hard by this latest move, and we understand that many workers will still need to be able to travel, so our plan is to continue as we are,” said Swindon’s Bus Company managing director, Andrew Wickham. 
Normal services will resume from Sunday, 3 January. 
“Several months ago, we introduced special measures to ensure travelling on public transport is one of the safest places to be - and this is still the case,” added Mr Wickham. 
“We have stringent regimes in place, including extra focus on touch-points with anti-viral wipes. Our passengers must wear face coverings, unless exempt, and we have also given our operation the ‘belt and braces’ treatment, by also adding hand sanitisers.
“I would like to give credit and to thank our dedicated team of drivers and support staff - who are themselves keyworkers. Their efforts are helping people carry out vital work in our region.”
