Bus and train services are mainly running full timetables again.
If you are using the bus or train you are still recommended to wear a face covering and wash/sanitise your hands before and after travel. Bus windows should be kept open to maximise ventilation.
The wearing of a face covering is compulsory under the operators' conditions of carriage on some bus services, including Wharfedale Venturer service 72B and all Western Dales Bus services.
Full timetables are running on most bus routes, except on Woofs of Sedbergh services W2 and W3 which remain suspended.
