Phil Southall, Carousel Buses Managing Director, said: “Our phased increase in services is designed to cope with the growing demand for travel as more people return to work and leisure activities as part of the continued easing of restrictions.

“We are experiencing an increase in patronage and buses are going to continue to form a vital role in bringing increased normality back into daily life for many.

“The safety and wellbeing of our customers and colleagues remain our biggest priority and the extensive measures we have introduced to provide increased confidence remain in place.”

The bus company also revealed that all rearward facing seats have been taken out of use to avoid customers sitting face to face and the ability to travel whilst standing on our vehicles has been temporarily removed.
