Taxi and private hire vehicle guidance

Face coverings on public transport in Wales

As of 27 July 2020 all passengers using public transport (including taxis and private hire vehicles (PHVs)) must wear a face covering. Welsh Government recommends wearing a three layer face covering.

Although it is only a legal requirement for passengers to wear a face covering on public transport, in order to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission, we would advise that drivers also wear a face covering. See a video on how to make a 3 layer face covering for further information.
