With all bus operators, the situation day-to-day is dependent on staff availability and may change quickly. The government have published advice on using public transport and also this useful infographic.
If a journey is of critical importance, for example, for a key worker, we recommend that you check with the operator concerned.

Transport for key workers
Due to the reduction of bus services across the county, Devon County Council are trialling an on-demand subsidised taxi service for Devon residents for key workers accessing employment only.
This service is intended to replace those journeys which were previously made by bus – a subsidised flat fare will be charged.
The key car service is intended to complement existing bus services which are still running. If there is still a bus operating on your route to work you should continue to use this, and our officers will check this before taking your booking.
Requests can only be made by email and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include the following information in your email:
- Key worker status
- Employer/payroll ref
- Journey requirements (pick up/drop off)
We will aim to respond to all requests as soon as possible during normal office hours – journeys should be booked 48 hours in advance of travel.
