Coronavirus Pandemic Update August 2021 – Bus and Coach Services across Moray
In line with Scottish Government Lockdown guidance, bus services in Moray and towards Aberdeen and Inverness have been revised a number of times in the past year to reflect demand and travel restrictions. Restrictions have continued to ease since April 2021 and a close to normal, pre pandemic level of service is now currently being operated. Customers continue to be welcomed aboard bus and coach services for both leisure and business purposes.
Throughout the pandemic, bus and coach companies across Scotland have demonstrated enhanced cleaning regimes on all vehicles and this is rigorously maintained daily. Customers also have a role to play in the continuation of the country opening up. Good hand hygiene must be maintained at all times and it’s suggested customers carry a small supply of hand sanitising gel with them. A face covering must be worn at all times whilst travelling on board a bus or coach in line with current Scottish government legislation, unless exempt.
Above all, no customer should consider travel if suffering any of the well documented symptoms of Covid-19. If in any doubt at all, self isolation and the booking of a PCR Covid test should be undertaken.
Bus transport to and from the Fiona Elcock Vaccination Centre on Edgar Road, Elgin, can be found on the Stagecoach Services 33A and 33C timetable link shown below.
For details of the up to date service please check the Stagecoach website on www.stagecoachbus.com or download the Stagecoach app to your mobile phone. Links to all timetables from Monday 16th August 2021 are shown below.

Mandatory use of face coverings on Public Transport with effect Monday 22 June 2020
Where possible people should continue to avoid public transport and walk, cycle or drive, but for some people this may not be an option. When necessary to use public transport people may be more likely to be in enclosed spaces for longer periods of time which increases the risk of virus spread and social distancing may be difficult to follow consistently.
Social distancing and hand washing remain by far the most important disease prevention measures, however, those that do wish to travel on buses, coaches, trains, trams, ferries or aircraft will be subject to the *mandatory wearing of a face covering for the duration of their journey, effective from Monday 22 June 2020.
People travelling should wash their hands or use hand sanitiser before putting their face covering on and after taking it off. It is important that people don’t touch their face covering when wearing it where possible. This is to avoid hand to mask transmission of the virus.
*Exceptions to the mandatory use of face coverings are set out below:
1. Passengers / Customers that have a health condition that would be exasperated if a face covering was worn.
2. Passengers / Customers with a disability
3. Children under the age of 11 years old.
**Please note that you may be refused travel if you are not wearing a face covering or are not in one of the categories listed above.

Do you need advice about travelling to and from your medical appointment?
The Transport to Healthcare Information Centre (THInC) can help. They provide practical transport advice for people who have difficulty getting to and from medical appointments in Grampian.
The service provides a dedicated telephone service offering guidance on accessing suitable transport options to get to and from appointments when they have no means of personal transport. The centre can provide details of suitable bus or train times, contact telephone numbers and other services such as local dial-a-bus or voluntary car schemes.
Please note that THInC does not book transport but can assist with travel advice.
The centre is the first of its kind in the UK and is a joint initiative between Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeenshire Council, Moray Council, NHS Grampian, The Scottish Ambulance Service and Nestrans. THInC is one of the projects taken forward as part of the Health and Transport Action Plan.
