Schedules, rules, reactivations: guide to public transport phase 2

Also for public transport -  May 4 marked a turning point between two phases of social life : before and after the coronavirus, before and after the "lockdown", the anti-accounting isolation. Graduality and caution are the keywords to restart the transport network, according to the guidelines outlined by government decrees and regional ordinances. First of all, the recommendations and rules for the new phase of cohabitation on board the public transport bus lines are listed below:

  • Mask use is mandatory on board all the public transport lines. Inside the stations and the ticket offices ONLY TRAVELERS WEARING A NOSE AND MOUTH PROTECTION MASK are admitted;
  • NEVER use public transport in presence of acute respiratory infections symptoms (fever, cough, cold);
  • travel is allowed ONLY for proven reasons according to the decree of the President of the Council of Ministers of 26 March 2020;
  • it is necessary to justify the reason for the travel with the self-certification to be shown at the police check;
  • it is mandatory to keep 1 meter distance from other travellers and staff;
  • Access to trains may be limited according to the number of passengers. When the numbers exceed those allowed inside a coach, passengers have to wait outside the station;
  • In stations, passengers are required to use separate entry and exit lanes according to the signs on the ground. Before boarding the train, other passengers must be let out.

ON BOARD BUSES, TROLLEYBUSES AND TRAMS

According to Regional Ordinance Z00037 of 30 April 2020, standing passengers are allowed up to 50 per cent of the vehicle transport capacity. For the ascent and descent, passengers must follow the signs on the doors. Only the central door is available on some buses. Before boarding, you must let the other passengers get off. On buses and trams, board passengers on board cannot sit on the prohibited seats or access the designated areas near the driver's cabins. The number of passengers on board can be limited and suspended when the maximum capacity is reached. In this case, the vehicles can skip the stops or only stop to let passengers hop off.
