If you’re starting to move around as the UK lockdown begins to lift next week, you’ll need a face covering of some sort when taking public transport. Now, this will include Uber, who are introducing this too.
We’re introducing mandatory face coverings as of Monday, June 15th to help protect the health and safety of you and your driver. From Monday, if you aren’t wearing a face mask or covering, your driver has the right to cancel your ride. Similarly, you can also cancel your ride if your driver arrives and is not wearing a face covering. Finally, anyone who is repeatedly flagged for not wearing a face covering will risk losing access to the app
Uber also advises that face coverings should covers your face from the bridge of your nose down to your chin (and not just the mouth, leaving the nose exposed as I’ve seen more than once recently).
Face coverings are required on public transport from Monday 15th of June
It goes without saying that if you are using some sort of public transport from the 15th July (Monday), you will need to have a face mask or face covering on. This includes Buses, Trains, Trams, London Underground, West Midlands Metro, Manchester Metro and so on.
And yes, we’ll be covering in-depth what it means for you.
