“However, I can assure the public that no geographical area is losing services and people will continue to be able to practise social distancing on our public transport network.

She continues, “My priority as always is keeping our communities safe.



“And my Department is doing everything it can to ensure essential services and connections are maintained for those using and reliant on our infrastructure network.

“I will keep the public transport situation under constant review in line with public health advice.

“As we enter a further period of enhanced restrictions, I am asking for your support and would ask everyone only to travel if their journey is essential.

“If you do need to use public transport for an essential journey, I would again reiterate that people must wear a face covering.

“These requirements are part of the continuing effort that all of us must make to reduce the risk of transmission of Covid-19. 



“All of us have a responsibility to act to keep each other safe.

The Minister adds, “Please do everything you can to protect yourself, protect your family and protect your community.”
